R.E. Vaughn enjoys reading and writing Contemporary Realistic Short Stories and Flash Fiction. The imperfections of the human dynamic intrigue him most. Estrangement, betrayal, revenge, defiance, guilt, gallows humor, deception, bad love, and not-so-nice folk predominate throughout his works.
Readers will find his stories are more character driven than plot intensive, with an emphasis on placing ordinary people in unusual yet believable situations and settings. He has faith his fiction will intrigue you the reader enough to want to follow each and every character through their dark and twisted—sometimes perilous—journey between the real world and the surreal one we all seek.
A Southerner by virtue of ancestry, birth, and choice, R.E Vaughn has lived in Europe, and for a short time on the Big Island of Hawaii. He currently make his home in the South, not far from the mountains of North Carolina, and the beaches of South Carolina. He hopes to retire one day to the quiet and solitude of farm life, away from the city, and continue his writing. His wife and cat have promised an occasional visit.
