Yes, it was a surprise to realize how much I enjoy writing short stories. I find it satisfying to complete a project over a shorter time frame, because novels take so looonnnnggg.
My first published short story, “Escape to Orange Blossom,” appeared in the integrated dystopian anthology, Prep for Doom. Next, “The Art of Remaining Bitter” was selected for inclusion in IWSG’s anthology, Hero Lost: Mysteries of Death and Life. Later in the fall, I have a short story featuring my first adult protagonist. “Justice for Jaynie” will appear in a new Sisters in Crime anthology, Thirty Shades of Dead. Details to follow in a later post.
