Featured Title


King of the Lake

Short Story Anthology

The King of the Lake and Other Stories will tug you to read them over and over, not just because of Kira Marie McCullough’s wonderfully descriptive and talented writing style, but because these timeless stories are about the stuff of life and relationships; heartfelt tales where  fathers and daughters can become kings and princesses.  Jim Sano, Award-Winning Author of the Father Tom Series


Through elegant use language, beautiful description, fully fleshed characters, and story lines that encompass heartache, loss, restoration, forgiveness, and at times quirky humor, Kira Marie McCullough’s anthology, King of the Lake and Other Stories weaves a rich tapestry of story, harkening back to the literary classics of Hemingway and Fitzgerald, the speculative fiction of Rod Serling, and the poignant Southern storytelling of Charles Martin.
