 Congratulations to Micki Peluso

a five time Tales2Inspire winner!



Micki Peluso won her first Tales2Inspire award for her inspiring story, The Whippoorwill’s Song, now published in Tales2Inspire ~ The Topaz Collection. Her gift for humor even shone through in this tale, while she briefly mentioned the personal tragedy that sparked her writing career. The loss of a child through vehicular homicide lead to a first time publication in Victimology: An International Magazine. It also sparked a career in Journalism.

Micki has freelanced and been staff writer for one major newspaper and has written for two more. She has published short fiction and non-fiction, as well as slice of life stories. Her first book, published in 2012, is a funny family memoir of love, loss and survival, titled . . . And THE WHIPPOORWILL SANG. This book won the Nesta CBC Silver Award for Writing that Builds Character. She also won third place in the Predators and Editors Contest and first place in the People’s Choice Monthly Award. She has stories in ‘Women’s Memoirs’, ‘Tales2inspire’, and ‘Creature Features’. Two of her short horror stories are published in an International Award winning anthology called “Speed of Dark.” Micki is presently working on a collection of short fiction, and slice of life stories in a book collection called, ‘Don’t Pluck the Duck’.

 The Whippoorwill’s Song

Micki learns how to cope with every parent’s worse nightmare – the tragedy of the loss of a child.  She loses her daughter, Noelle, due to a tragic accident. Despite her grief, Micki moves on and learns to live and even laugh again. In this poignant story, Micki shares it all, including her determination not to give up on life.

The Girl Who Loved Christmas

Noelle loved this holiday and somehow was convinced it was made just for her. Micky makes us smile as she recounts many of Noelle’s special holiday rituals. As you read this story, you might also be convinced that although no longer with us here on Earth, Noelle is still celebrating Christmas in her own special way.

But Micki Never Loses her sense of humor!

Four of Micki’s stories find their way into a Tales2Inspire Collection of humorous tales: 

The first of theses stories: Tomatoes and Teenagers, is written as an analogy, comparing raising teenagers to the challenges of growing tomatoes. Six children, each a year or two apart, can be as delicate or as frustrating as raising tomatoes in a garden. Thankfully, both parents and children survive, with both getting their just rewards.

The second of Micki’s humorous stories: 86 the Coleslaw, begins when her husband asks her to just ‘babysit’ their fast food restaurant while he’s away on business. She grudgingly agrees. In this story, everything that can go wrong does go wrong, causing calamity and shock among their customers and staff. Yet Micki is proud she survived with the restaurant almost intact, until her husband hears about the chaos and warns her to never go near the Chicken Coop again!

The third of Micki’s humorous stories:  The Mean Machines

It seemed a simple fact of life that all the mechanical lemons of the world end up in Micki’s home. She’s convinced that electrical appliances somehow prey on women like her. She became suspicious of deliberate sabotage when she moved into her first home, which was filled with modern conveniences. The vacuum cleaner, for instance, only ran in reverse. She never complained, until the day it vacuumed her right out the front door.  .  .  . And that was just the beginning.

The fourth of Micki’s humorous stories: Relatives and Fish

When Micki’s oldest daughter called early one morning to ask if she could come home for a few weeks, ‘to get her head together’, Micki agreed without hesitation. She looked forward to having her home again, along with those two perfect male specimens, her grandsons. Do you remember that old saying about visitors and fish? In this hysterical tale, Micki shows us how the same holds true for relatives – children and grandchildren no exception.
