Ah, summer. Long days full of warm sunshine and one of the most popular times to travel. But what happens when something throws your travel plans off course?
 The First Story, “Excess Baggage”: Allison has just come home from a grueling business trip. All she wants to do is spend a quiet weekend at home parked in front of the TV or maybe curled up with a blanket. When a friend calls to ask her for a favor, though, all of Allison’s plans hit rough air.
The Second Story, “Wrong Way”: With one daughter married and another in college, Rachel and Jim should be enjoying their time as a couple again. But Jim’s worries about his widowed mother force Rachel into a spur-of-the-moment road trip to check on the old bat.

About the Author 

Ekta R. Garg’s love affair with words began at the age of 4, and by the age of 8 she was writing poetry and short essays. In elementary school she participated in a word junkie's ultimate past time: spelling bees. She won the South Carolina state title four times, the regional title once, and competed in two national level competitions, including the 1993 Scripps National Spelling Bee.

Her love for spelling supplemented her love for writing. Ekta was the co-editor
of her high school yearbook for her junior and senior years. In college she worked briefly for the University of South Carolina campus literary magazine, The Garnet and Black, and in 2002 she got her MSJ in magazine publishing from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.

Since the start of her career in 2005 Ekta has edited and written about everything from health care to home improvement to Hindi films. She has written for and edited: The Portland Physician Scribe, Portland, Oregon’s premier medical newspaper; show magazines for home tours organized by the Portland Home Builders Association;; The Bollywood Ticket; The International Indian; and the annual anthologies published by the Avondale Inkslingers, based in Avondale, Arizona.

In 2010 Ekta began The Write Edge as a personal commitment to take her writing more seriously. What started as one blog now functions as four. Every week Ekta publishes brand new short fiction on TheWrite Edge Writing Workshop, which she designed for herself. She blogs about parenting on Growth Chart and posts original book reviews on The Write Edge Bookshelf. The Write Edge also acts as the umbrella for Prairie Sky Publishing where she blogs weekly about the entire indie publishing process.

A year later, in 2011, Ekta stepped off the ledge and became a freelancer. She edits short stories and novels for other writers, contributing to their writing dreams. She is also a part-time editor for aois21, and she posts her book reviews on NetGalley, Goodreads, and

When she's not writing, Ekta is a domestic engineer—known in the vernacular as a “housewife.”  She’s married, has two energetic daughters who keep her running, and she divides her time between keeping house and fulfilling her writing dreams on a regular basis.
