Kennedy blogs and writes books for writers. These two stories are the only fiction she has published to date, although she promises something in 2016. That doesn't mean she's not an accomplished writer. I have nothing all that critical to say about these stories. They set up the reader nicely for a shocking twist at the end, and like most such stories, are built on assumptions that the writer hopes the reader doesn't question before she's pulled the rug out.
Kennedy is probably wise to write books for authors. Making a living writing fiction these days is extremely difficult because the competition is great and the hurdles to get traditionally published get higher every day.
"A Purple Elephant" opens with the murder of gold fish and leaves the reader wondering who murdered the gold fish. Sounds trivial, but it's important for the sanity of the narrator.
"The Replacements" is told from a third person point of view. Natalie is the main character, a runaway, who has returned home to find replacements. She makes a very bad decision, and soon realizes her mistake, only to make matters worse she she tries to correct the mistake.
Like Natalie, Candice, from "A Purple Elephant" is damaged and significantly flawed, but Ms. Kennedy's writing makes the reader want to empathize with the character, and hope for the best. But...good luck with that.
