The Yelping: Essays and Stories (2018)
Master’s Thesis. A collection of essays and short stories that focuses thematically on the evolution of a relationship from courtship to marriage.

Many of the pieces start with a minor misunderstanding or a failure of communication, and the humor and crises that result.
