Dave Riggler's Stories
Dave Riggler's Stories is a compilation of six of the short stories I have written over the years centering around the character of Dave Riggler. These stories trace Dave's growth from a young boy to his mid-thirties.
"Last Call" is the story of one night in a bar, a chance meeting, and the limits of personal responsibility.
"First Steps" is the story of Dave Riggler's first psychotherapy session. He's a handicapped teenager, who uses a wheelchair, in therapy (he thinks) because his school wants him to walk on a walker, but he doesn't want to. "First Steps" is a story about being handicapped, identity, and self-determination, for better or worse.
