In Larissa, the heroine of her forthcoming collection of flash fiction, Teresa Milbrodt has created an alter ego.
They have much the same concerns, and are at home in an Ohio town.  Milbrodt divulges her concerns, worries and philosophy by way of her characters; Larissa divulges hers to monsters that appear in the middle of the night.
Larissa is a sweet-souled young woman, ready to share her troubles with work, boyfriends, monsters and the world in general. But the paper halo-wearing shoe store clerk also is a good listener lending an ear to the woes of others including a much-put upon Mrs. Santa Claus.
Milbrodt doles out Larissa's thoughts and adventures in short bursts of 500 to 1,000 words.
"Larissa Takes Flight" is Milbrodt's third book. She also has a novel "The Patron Saint of Unattractive People" on Boxfire Press and a collection of short stories "Bearded Women: Stories" on ChiZine Publications.

The Bowling Green theater scene, already rich with university and independent companies, is about to have an added ingredient.
Jonathan Chambers and Sara Lipinski Chambers, a married couple who teach in the Bowling Green State University's Department of Theatre and Film, launch Broken Spectacle Productions this weekend with its inaugural production "The Drunken City" at Cafe Havana, 309 S. Main St. Bowling Green with showtimes tonight and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 6:30 p.m. Lipinski Chambers is directing with Chambers serving as the producer.
When it comes to theater, Lipinski Chambers  said: "We have a more-the-merrier attitude."
The play, space and cast say a lot about the goals of the new troupe.
Broken Spectacle aims to perform new plays, those written within the last decade, in unusual space, using the area's wealth of talent.

Playwright Neil LaBute loves to strike the raw nerve. His work is in the audience's faces. Just like his character Phillip in "The Shape of Things" he doesn't back off, moving relentlessly from humor to discomfort, revealing the misshapen psyches of his characters.
Staged in the small space available to Lionface Productions this makes for an intense experience, no dark theater nor plush seats to sink into.
Lionface is staging "The Shape of Things," a contemporary take on the Pygmalion story tonight, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. in the former church at 123 Court St., Bowling Green. Tickets are $5.
The dark comedy, directed by Christina Hoekstra, starts with what appears a mild act of rebellion as art student Evelyn (Brigid Randolph) steps over the line at the museum, intruding into the space of a sculpture. When confronted by the mousy museum guard Adam (Joshua Powell) she's up front about her intentions. The sculpture of the male nude had its privates covered with foliage after a public outcry in the small college town. She's intent on restoring with spray paint the figure's manhood.
