Bill Weinberg is a lawyer who moved decades ago to little Hindman, Kentucky, deep in the mountains on the banks of Troublesome Creek. He has been writing and re-writing short stories since 1996. This collection includes stories set in the Kentucky mountains alongside two set in the Caribbean. “Each story in Troublesome Creek and Beyond is honest and well-crafted. . . Bill Weinberg knows his Appalachian characters well, but his deft hand allows the richness of the Caribbean to come alive on the page, too. Weinberg made me care about all of these people long after I read each story. You will, too.” – Crystal Wilkinson. “Bill Weinberg’s stories reflect the lives and character of the people of two notable places – Eastern Kentucky and the remote Caribbean islands of St. John and St. Croix. They are about struggle, fears, and mistakes, but they are also about right choices, love and caring.” – Loyal Jones.
