A Duck Quacks
Short Story Collection
After years of sitting on the sidelines, quacking plot twists and character maps into her ear, Drake, The Duck Muse, insisted that author Diana Kathryn take dictation for a collection of thirteen short stories of his own creation. He’s a tremendously creative duck, but feathers and flippers make for difficult typing. Diana Kathryn agreed, and “A Duck Quacks” is the end result of their unusual collaboration.

What Readers Are Saying:
13 Amazing Stories Wrapped Up Into One Incredible Book.
The characters for each story were amazing. I loved each character as I continued to read and the story-lines for each story were magnificent. Each individual story had me either giggling or stopping a moment to ponder more about the story I was reading at the time. I really enjoyed the creativity each incredible story brought forth and I highly recommend this read.
Diverse and Engaging Stories.
I haven't read many short stories since I was a teenager, but I picked up A Duck Quacks and was excited to dive right in! I was pleasantly surprised at the content, style, and especially the stories with a twist! Here are some of my favorites: Chasing the Enemy, Fire and Water, Reunion Redux, Business as usual, and The Holiday Market, but don't take my word for it; read it!
A fun read.
This is a collection of stories in a variety of styles. Some are funny parody/spoof. A couple will make you think with a different look at a familiar tale, and there are a couple that are just sweet stories. This is not literary fiction; this is fiction for your enjoyment. Read a story on your lunch break to escape the office! 4 stars.
