A new anthology, Apocalypse Chronicles, was released today by Almond Press, and I was lucky enough to have my short story "Pillar of Salt" included as one of the featured stories. The little blurb about my story is: "Scientists discover that the Earth has undergone a nuclear apocalypse in the future - or was it in the past?" I tend to write a lot of darker themes, but I also like to have a bit of hope mixed in, to show how strong the human spirit can be in the face of adversity. I feel that apocalypse tales give the writer opportunity to showcase this - that in the midst of darkness, there can be light.
I had a lot of fun writing this one, and I hope you enjoy reading it, too.
