Chance Meetings

I'm a little behind in posting this, but please join me in congratulating Madhu Bazaz Wangu on the publication of her debut short story collection, Chance Meetings! I was privileged to work with Madhu on a copyedit of this lovely collection of diverse stories about chance encounters, and I recently redesigned the book's cover. Here's the description:

In this eloquent collection of stories, twelve different people from different walks of life discover how one chance meeting with a stranger can change a person forever. Drawing from her own Indian-American heritage, Madhu Bazaz Wangu examines the lives of ordinary people facing challenging circumstances—cruelty, prejudiced minds, twisted family relationships, unhappy marriages—and demonstrates how these situations transcend ethnicity and background as interactions with strangers force each character to look deep within themselves, often acknowledging painful truths and long-held secrets, in order to seize control of their own destinies and forge their own paths to independence and happiness. Madhu Bazaz Wangu poignantly weaves a universal message that ties the characters in these stories together, one that applies to anyone who has experienced poverty, jealousy, fear, prejudice, disillusionment, and above all, the feeling of being a foreigner, even within one’s own family.

Chance Meetings is available now in ebook and print formats on AmazonBarnes & Noble, and Smashwords. Add it to your shelves on Goodreads and visit Madhu's website for the scoop on her Mindful Writers workshops.
