“Small Doses” is a collection of flash fiction built around medical themes. They are not clinical accounts, nor are they to be used as any sort of factual reference; they are pure fiction. However, several are based on existing, documented conditions. There are tales of love, loss and betrayal which examine health and illness from varying points of view; a man who is dying to sleep, a hand with a mind of its own, and an efficient if somewhat unemotional caretaker. Whether the maladies are real or imagined, they have one thing in common: the struggle which we, as humans, endure as ultimately mortal beings.

Lisa Vooght was born, and still lives, in Lancaster County, PA. Although starting out as a marine biology major, she pursued a business career, then finally settled down in the field of special education. Writing took a backseat in her life until several years ago, when she began to write and submit short stories for publication. Her most recent works include “Visible Signs”, included in the paranormal anthology After Dark (published by Ethics Trading) and the flash fiction collection Small Doses, soon to be published by Trestle Press. You can read more of her work at or find her on Twitter as @ficflash

Mark Miller’s One is a spiritual anthology examining True-Life experiences of Authors and their Faith. As the series evolves expect to discover what it means to have faith, no matter what that faith is and no matter where they live. Remember that we are all part of this One World.

Story Five from Melissa Studdard, best-selling author of Six Weeks to Yehidah, and Scott Lutz, a behavioral and teen counselor, tells an incredible tale of finding love where love was never expected. The romantically linked pair of authors shares how they almost never met and how their spirituality created a bond that spanned a continent.
Scott Lutz currently works with adolescents as a Behavior Support Worker. His 16 years of counseling experience includes practice as a group facilitator in the areas of domestic violence, families of divorce, and survivors of abuse, as well as individual counseling with adults and youth. He has contributed to two videos produced to support children of divorce and survivors of violence and abuse. He is a student of life, constantly asking questions and developing new ones about the human condition and the human journey, and he is passionate about joining his clients in discovering meaning and purpose as they endeavor to create lives of consequence. He balances his counseling career with photography, trail racing, and down-hill mountain biking.

Melissa Stud¬dard is the author of the best¬selling novel Six Weeks to Yehi¬dah (which was a recipient of a Forward National Literature Award), and the newly released companion journal, My Yehidah. Her poetry, fic¬tion, essays, reviews, and arti¬cles have appeared in numer¬ous jour¬nals and antholo¬gies, includ¬ing Boule¬vard, Con¬necti¬cut Review, Pleiades, Gradiva, Amer¬i¬can Book Review, and Poets and Writ¬ers. She cur¬rently serves as a Reviewer-at-Large for The National Poetry Review, an editorial advisor for Lapis Lazuli Journal of The Harold Pinter Society of India, and a con¬tribut¬ing edi¬tor for both The Cri-te¬rion and Tiferet. As well, she is the host of Tiferet’s radio inter¬view pro¬gram, Tiferet Talk, and a professor at a community college in Texas.

Together, Scott and Melissa enjoy meditation, writing, yoga, hiking, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
