A Concrete Wish: a modern fable
By Mignon Ariel King
“A bachelor-woman writer with a dull but steady day job may have found her prince. Too bad she wasn't looking for one. Boston Rock poet Emmie was born in Massachusetts, and Boston is part of her. Visual artist and tech wiz Mark grew up surfing beaches in California. Did fate bring this odd couple together years after a brief but intense friendship? Or is it just a coincidence? You decide. This is a modern love story for people with brains.”
