"Mallory" discovers how her own unhealthy behaviors impact those around her
GREEN BAY, Wis.: The title character in author Kevin J. Smith's newest short story deals with the same types of self-imposed limitations that are common with many high achievers. Mallory does not realize the destructive impact her issues are having on herself and family; only that her domineering father's influence remains a significant part of her existence, for better or worse.
Mallory is the third in Smith's 'Discovering Kindness' series of short stories produced with writing partner Laura Sherman. The entire 'Discovering Kindness' series (M&B Global Solutions Inc.) will be available in paperback and digital formats later this year.
