LOS ANGELES - April 12, 2018 - PRLog -- California author Zack Rehfeld has written his short story collection - - 10 MINUTE SHORT STORIES - - as a sort of "primer" of life for young people, but at the same time created a book that will readily pique the interest of older, mature readers too who can see themselves in reflective stories such as "55 Chevy" or "Devil's Drop."  "Many of my stories are from the real-life experiences I have had, lessons I learned maybe the hard way sometimes," said Mr. Rehfeld. "I guess I was inspired to write these stories as a way to teach my step daughter about all the kinds of challenges and situations she would one day face in the world."

However, not all the stories comprising 10 MINUTE SHORT STORIES are based on so-called "real life."  In a skillfully told tale that the author titles "Excalibur," he tells his version of how King Arthur became a mystical figure in literature. "This story is among my favorites in the book. I have always been a huge fan of fictional books set in medieval times…I really hope my readers will enjoy how I see this famous ancient English King came into being."  Other similar stories in this fictional vein include "Maluk, The Gallant Warrior," and "Tasumpsa."

Mr. Rehfeld's 10 MINUTE SHORT STORIES run the real-life gamut of sketches including loaning money to friends, creating your own self-reliance-independence and some moral lessons too. "I wrote many of my stories to send the reader a message, to draw a lesson to be learned by showing how the characters in the story are portrayed as they play out the scenario," asserted Mr. Rehfeld. "For instance, my story 'Big Mike and Lil Vic' is about trust between two people."

In his 92-page book 10 MINUTE SHORT STORIES – containing 38 short stories, 1 poem and a note from the author – the author also serves up a range of other stories, often in vignette, anecdotal formats. There's one entitled "Patrick"; "Hey, Waiter," a moment between the pages with a would-be rock star; "Peanut," a story about bullying (timely today in our schools); "James and the Secret Key," a story about a man's relationship with God and "Morpheus," a stirring poem that takes the reader on a reflective journey into life's joys and mysteries.
