About Anthony Trendl
Anthony Trendl's writing ranges from playful children's tales to spiritually-influenced psychological short stories.
Just released: "The First Time You Die," a quirky tale involving a private tour of a cemetery. Set in Chicago's Southside.
Coming soon: "The Ghost of Old Suwanee," a spooky campfire tale along the lines of Washington Irving with a Southern twist.
Louis Copland has been dead over 50 years, and he is on hand to give the newly deceased Roger Aldridge, a “freshie,” a tour of their cemetery. Who’s who in the yard, the rules about their present situation, and a strong warning about the gate.
In the cemetery is one big city mayor, a reluctant saint, and more than a few criminals. One thing that’s hard to find is the truth.
Roger can’t talk, and Louis has a lot to say. Is this the beginning of a beautiful friendship?
The short story “The First Time You Die” is unlike any tale you’ve read, and ready to challenge your thoughts about life, death, and all that’s after.
