One dad, twin preschoolers, and a three-thousand mile trip.
What could go wrong?
Bernard Keyes travels cross-country with his identical twin girls so they can be flower girls in his brother’s wedding. But that last mile of winding country roads just might be the hardest part of his journey… other than the ceremony itself. An inkling of trouble cracks in Captain Disaster’s arthritic knuckles, but can he push his sputtering, rusted-out old truck fast enough to save the day?

The Writing of Captain Disaster and the Twin Terrors of Unholy Matrimony
This was a short story that I originally wrote during the June 2011 Short Story Workshop that I did with Kristine Kathryn Rusch. This is the last story I wrote at the workshop; I was getting tired so this one came out pretty silly.
Thanks and I hope you enjoy the story.
