In this dark, suspenseful and somewhat comical look at one man's desires, Remote Control by bestselling author Cheryl Kaye Tardif delivers a strong message: Be careful what you wish for!

Meet Harold Fielding--plumber by part of the day, slacker/tv addict the rest of the day and night. Harry believes that fame and fortune will come to him if he wishes hard enough. God forbid if he should actually work for it. 

Beatrice Fielding is Harry's hardworking wife. She holds down multiple jobs so her husband can laze about on his recliner, eating popcorn and drinking cola while watching his favorite shows. She has many wishes--some aren't so nice.

This novelette (10,000 words) is available at Amazon Kindle, Smashwords and more.

Remote Control is based on a short story of the same name that I wrote back in 1987. I wrote it as part of an assignment for a Journalism and Short Story Writing course I was taking at the time. The lesson was about incorporating IRONY into your writing. Remote Control is the ultimate irony. "Be careful what you wish for!"
