I’m so thrilled to say that the 2nd & Starlight Anthology is now live on Amazon. One of my Silver Honorable Mention stories from the Writers of the Future Contest is included. I’m happy to be a part of such a fabulous collection of stories and to be among so many amazing authors.
Here’s the blurb about what’s inside:
Journey into the future where androids fight our wars, and into magical lands where fiances are turned into… cows. From deep space to war-torn countrysides, these eleven tales will whisk you far away to other lands, and into the dark mind of a supernatural being.
My story is Ghosts to My Fingertips. The inspiration behind the piece comes from my grandfather, a WWII vet. I grew up not knowing much about his war experiences until I was in middle school when he finally told me about the German buzz bombs flying over the ordnance base he was stationed at. One day, he heard the engine of a bomb cut off, so he dove under his bunk. That day, he was the lone survivor in the bunkhouse.
I had never realized before that moment he almost wasn’t my grandpa. To me, he’d always been the one who babysat me or fixed things when they were broken. Since then, he’s shared many other stories over the years, and now I realize he’s my grandpa and a hero. I wrote this story for him, all with a sci-fi twist of course.
So check out the anthology and let me know what you think! I hope you enjoy!
