How to celebrate Easter becomes a balancing act for Christian and Joy Andersen and their four children. Chocolate bunnies, colorful stuffed baskets and flashy fashion shows are their competition.

Despite the enticements, Christian refuses to succumb without a fight. And it becomes a tug of war when his recently adopted ten year-old daughter, Bethani, wants to participate in her friend’s Easter tradition.

Real Dreams: Thirty Years of Short Stories is an anthology of stories I wrote between 1981 and 2011. Each reflects changes in my writing style and interests over time. I wrote the earliest story at the age of ten, and the latest thirty years later.

Kim Golden: It started with a conversation I had with a friend who was considering going to a fertility clinic and using a sperm donor. We joked about how it would be amusing if choosing a sperm donor was like going to a speed dating session. Continue reading 5 Minutes, 5 Questions With… Kim Golden, author of Maybe Baby
