The Suicide Diaries.

I’ve recently written a collection of short stories called The Suicide Diaries, and while I know the topic is a touchy one, I felt it was something I needed to do. The free collection so far consists of three separate “books”, all of which can be downloaded here, and each telling a short story about someone who has decided to kill themselves. The stories are not lighthearted, they are dark and depressing, and always end with the person’s death, so keep that in mind if you decide to check them out.

While these stories are fictional, the subject and situations are very real and my hope is that by reading them people will start to open their eyes to what is going on around them. Perhaps you’ve never hurt someone like that before, perhaps you have, but the point of theses stories is to help people realize that their words and actions have consequences, and sometimes what you think of as a simple joke may be the final straw that sends someone over the edge.

Like I said, it’s a touchy subject, but if even one person can be helped by me putting these stories out there, then it’s more than worth any backlash I may receive.

If you or someone you know is in crisis or having thoughts of suicide, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

Later.

    Hello,

    I coach High School Speech and Drama. I have a student who would like to use ‘The Suicide Diaries (Book 1)’ for an Oral Interpretation piece in competition. As per the Montana Forensic Educators Association rules, we need the author’s permission to use published material. Please let me know if you give permission for her to use this publication. Hopefully the email I’ve included on the form is available to you.
