Detour is a collection of stories-some award winning-that covers many facets of life and fantasy.

"Some of my own traits and actions of people I know appear in the stories. Of course, the names are changed so I won't be blamed."
-Allen W. Watkins

"I knew Allen Watkins' collection of short stories, Detour, was a winner after finishing the first story with tears in my eyes. From his "catchy" one-page "Catch 22", through the happy ending of "A Memorable Christmas", to his tale of vengeance "Light of the Moon", Watkins plays with the emotions the way Gene Krupa played the drums." -Joan West, Editor & Publisher, Write! Publish! Sell!

"Allen and I have been trading short stories for nearly two decades. He is undeniably one of the best story tellers ever. He takes a speck of an idea and transforms it into a wonderful read that everyone can enjoy." -Jack Petro, Author & Theater Critic
