If Found is a collection of fictional short stories that attempts to shed light on the small yet important moments that define life. At the core of these stories are ordinary events that could happen to anyone: a terrible storm, a night out gone wrong, a painful reunion, a long night of waiting, and the loss of a spouse. The characters themselves are also recognizable; you won’t find any superheroes or wizards among them. They are your neighbor, your loved one, even yourself – average individuals that embody all stages of life, from childhood to old age. It is their unique reactions to these common situations that make them special and act as the focus of this collection. If Found attempts to demonstrate that there is no such thing as trivial pain, and that it is the small, everyday sorrows that are often the most significant.
