Critics have compared her work to that of Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston, but J. California Cooper has a warm, witty style that's definitely her own. Each of her short stories is a gem of downhome wisdom, polished with a bit of gossip, some heartbreak, and lots of humor.

In Funny Valentines a simple woman draws one heart on Valentine's Day and divides it among the people she loves, until all but one of them lies in the cemetery. Living portrays a man in midlife crisis who leaves his loving wife and pleasant country home for a taste of high city living and returns with a new perspective on life. Spooks is the tongue-in-cheek tale of a man who masquerades as a ghost in order to outsmart an unscrupulous suitor and win the heart of a vulnerable widow.

Sometimes sad, sometimes funny, and always touching, J. California Cooper's characters enlighten us and enrich us as they find love in unlikely places. The warm narrations will give listeners a sense of chatting with nosy but well-meaning neighbors over the back fence.

    " The story in this one that stays with me was that woman minding someone else's business. Loved the way that piece was written. Full of sarcasm, even had me wondering if someone out here in this big mystifying world doesn't analyze or justify their snooping in the same way! Too funny! "
