Going Home

I’m really pleased to announce that my short story, “Going Home” has been published by the Furtive Dalliance Literary Review and is available now at Amazon:



This is the poignant story of a young woman who discovers that you cannot really go home again because much of what (and who) you remember simply isn’t there anymore.

Black and White

I am so pleased and, yes, excited to announce that my story, “Black and White” is now  available in the Clarendon House anthology, Carrier Wave.
This is a story (in 3 small chapters) told with humor and yet it has a deeper meaning. It follows two hapless guys in their efforts as private detectives. I hope you will enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.


This anthology is available in both the Kindle edition at Amazon: 

And in the paperback edition at Clarendon House:

The Vanishing of M. Renoir (in print!)

I’m most excited to announce that “The Vanishing of M. Renoir” has been accepted for the Vortex anthology by Clarendon House now available in both the paperback and the Kindle digital edition.


This is one of my favorite short stories. I sometimes wonder where it came from. I’ve heard Stephen King in his talks say that people often ask, “Where do you get your ideas?” And his answer, mostly, is the same as mine: I just don’t know. Could be anywhere. Sometimes a spark just happens and there you are. But this one, The Vanishing of M. Renoir, is a complete mystery to me. One day I sat down to write and there it was. That was one of my lucky days.

The Cleaner (Encore!)

I’m so very excited to announce that my short story, “The Cleaner” (originally published by Tuck Magazine) was published on the first of May by a wonderful publisher: Literally Stories. This website publishes quality fiction and I’m very proud that they have included my work for a second time with this publication.

The Cleaner   by R.L.M. Cooper

I was also overwhelmed to read there the following review:

Brilliant, moving and a heartbreaking image to leave the reader with.
Super stuff!!!
