‚ÄčLittle Lives, published by Main Street Rag (October, 2007), is a collection of short stories that intimately explores ordinary lives. Available for sale through Amazon.

"The 'little' lives in these stories are rendered with big heart and considerable skill. John Picard's vision is sharp and humane, and his unfailing ability to locate that point in our lives when the waters flow toward a different sea makes this a timeless and memorable collection."
