Where the Clouds Begin is a powerfully written series of short stories which plunge readers in the emotional, funny, complex and sometimes dark sides of family and small-town life. Loomis masterfully captures the sometimes triumphant and sometimes aching emotions of a young man growing up in the Sierra Nevada foothills in a tumultuous family. The town is full of colorful and unforgettable characters.


Each story is distinct in this dynamic anthology. Loomis etches every character with care and the narratives draw you in thoroughly. You feel as though you were there, experiencing what he did, growing up like Scout in To Kill a Mockingbird. Many of the events will leave you laughing, but some of the tales are deeply thought-provoking. These tales provide a deeply emotional and satisfying ride into the past.
