Wilson’s guests are Nancy Sakaduski, founder and owner of Cat and Mouse Press in Rehoboth, Delaware, and short story writer Nancy Sherman. Nancy Sakaduski discusses The Rehoboth Beach Reads Short Story Contest, which she manages, and her new book, How to Write Winning Short Stories. Cat and Mouse Press focuses its publishing on stories that feature beach life in the Delmarva Region, and on providing resources and opportunities for writers.
Author Nancy Sherman’s first collection of short stories, Sandy Shorts, was awarded a regional first place by Delaware Press Association and national first place by the National Federation of Press Women (2015). More Sandy Shorts, her second collection, won the same two awards when it came out in 2019. Sherman reads an edited version of her story “The Cost of Happiness,” the humorous give and take between two sisters on the purchase of a beach house.
