I know some writers will tell you that ALL the stories they write are their favorites, but I can tell you that's not true for me. I always like some stories better than others - sometimes because of the theme, sometimes because of the characters, and sometimes because everything comes together beautifully and completely and I sit back and say, "S**t, I wrote that?" So I am really, really pleased to say that one of my favorites was published today in Perpetual Motion Machine's newsletter. This is a story that I sat down to write and it felt like the story was writing itself with no help from me. So I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Read it here for free.
I am a freelance writer and poet with over sixty short pieces published in magazines and anthologies. When not writing, I review books for the ezine Bewildering Stories. If the Walking Dead isn't on, I draw pictures and do origami meditation in Connecticut, where I live with my husband and three children. If the Walking Dead is on... shhhh! The Walking Dead is on!
