News!! Super beltated news due to life being…well a disaster due to a very slow recovery from Post Concussion Syndrome.
But that’s not the exciting part!!
My first ever foray into YA, a short story called “The August Sands” is being published an anthology, Short Stuff (pub. Interlude Press). In even better news, it’s going up on Netgalley today!!
The August Sands
As the eldest child in his family, Tommy Hughes always felt the weight of responsibility growing up—to his mother, who depended on him, and to his kid brother and sister, who looked up to him. But during a summer vacation to the Michigan shore, Tommy chafes to break free and to start experiencing a series of firsts before embarking for the new world of college.
I had a lot of fun writing this, and so much fun writing about a place I love so dearly. I can’t wait to invite you in to one of my favorite places in the world.
It could start anywhere…
At a summer vacation at the lake, just before heading off to college. In a coffee shop, when the whole world is new. In a dragon’s cave, surrounded by gold. At a swim club, with the future in sight. In SHORT STUFF, bestselling and award-winning authors dial down the angst in four meet-cute LGBTQ young adult romances.
SHORT STUFF features stories from Julia Ember (The Seafarer’s Kiss), Jude Sierra (Idlewild, What It Takes), Kate Fierro (Love Starved), and the writing team of Tom Wilinsky and Jen Sternick (Snowsisters). Edited by Alysia Constantine (Olympia Knife, Sweet).
