Beverly Olevin

Into every life a little deception must fall.


Lies and indiscretions are a matter of degree in this collection of stories which slides across the border between charming Thuberesque tales and deeply moving stories with bruising impact. The whimsy and innocence of Following Bennie and the title story, Little Lies and Serious Indiscretions, are elevated by a sweet introspection that gives them surprising emotional impact. The Gypsy Moon brings myth and magical story telling to life, while Charlotte Corday and Neat as Pin provide taut journeys into the humorous side of revenge.


With honesty, compassion, and a delightful sense of humor, Olevin creates page-turning fiction.
