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.
