A few days ago, author and editor Anneli Purchase encouraged me to enter her short story writing contest. I’m delighted to share that my story was one of four winners! Please enjoy this very short (300 word) award-winning–it makes me happy to say that–story. While you’re there, read the other winners, and check out Anneli’s other posts. You’ll be glad you did.

  1. Awfully proud of you I am.
    Your characters are engaging even with so few words. I would like to see more of this story.

    1. Thanks, Mom. I’m grateful to Anneli for encouraging me to enter the contest and putting such a provocative picture out there. Maybe I’ll find more of this story in my head after POSSESSION is done!
