"I Voted for Biddy Schumacher: Mismatched Tales from the Mind of Brian Centrone" is a collection of three short stories from up and coming author, Brian Centrone. The collection opens with "The Life and Times of Biddy Schumacher: A Fantastic Story." In this bizarre and enchanting tale of small town life, readers are introduced to quirky, religious zealot Biddy Schumacher whose decision to run for political office changes the course of her life. In "A Shade of Gray" ("INK") independent, spirited Emma must try and find the courage and words to tell her boyfriend, "it's over." Finally, the well received "Exit" ("Voyages," "Red Rover") completes this trio of stories, taking the reader on a late night car ride while the driver examines his life, friends, and relationships. Includes the Special "Hills Valley Town News" Report on Biddy Schumacher's Run for Office.
