I encourage you to visit your local bookstore, including M and M Books in Cedar Rapids, to purchase your copy of Running Wild Press’s second volume of collected stories. This is the only place to read my story “Idylls of the King!” But if you have to buy it from Amazon, so be it.

One of the greatest moments of my writing career was being published online by Big World Network. I have learned so much by being involved with BWN, but unfortunately, it will not be hosted after the first of the year. The very hardworking editor and CEO were unable to make the site viable, but it’s possible that it may be reborn as a non-profit. So for now, my gritty Cinderella reboot “Harvest of Ash” is on hiatus. Read the first two seasons here, and stay tuned — I am actively writing the end of the story, and it will appear SOMEWHERE at some point. Thank you, BWN, especially Amanda, for all you’ve taught me!
