Florida Writers Association Collection Volume 7

This past weekend, I attended my very first writers conference. The Florida Writers Association 2015 Conference was held in Orlando, Florida at the Altamonte Springs Hilton. It was a wonderful experience meeting other writers and attending workshops and panels.

One of the highlights for me was the book signing, where all the writers – including me – of the sixty short stories included in Volume Seven of the Florida Writers Association Collection book, Revisions: Stories of Starting Over, had a chance to autograph copies of the book.

Book Signing

I got to sit at a table alongside some writing veterans and sign my name – over and over – and loved every minute of it! And just a few feet away, New York Times best selling author, Marie Bostwick, signed her name to the same book!

My non-fiction story, The Replacements, is the story of my dad starting his life over again after WWII. It starts on page 57. The book can be found on here.

Royal Palm Literary Awards

My two flash fiction (1000 words or less) entries for the 2015 Royal Palm Literary Award made it into the competition’s semi-finals and finals, but came up short of winning at the 2015 Florida Writers Conference in October.

But it was exciting to see my name and picture show up on the big screen at the banquet with the other finalists!

The Shadows in the Alley

zombie storyJust a quick post about my latest foray into fiction writing…

My local newspaper, the Ocala Star-Banner, ran a “round robin” story contest for Halloween this year.  Rick Allen started the story and published the first 500 or so words and challenged readers to finish it in 300 words or less.

I won the contest and had my picture and ending to the story published in the Sunday, October 26 paper.

If you’d like to read the story and Rick’s write-up about me, just click here.
