"Cold Again"

Happy Tuesday, all. I can't believe it's December already - December fourth, at that. It doesn't seem possible. I'm excited to start the month with another story published in The Opening Line. My short story "Cold Again" is the "Pick of the Month" for the magazine's Winter Spirit issue and you can find it on page fourteen of the mag that is free to download here.

For a while now, I've been considering doing something a little different with my side project historical story Slight of Hand, and Opening Line's December issue seemed like the perfect chance to explore the new ideas. I'm so glad, now, that I wrote this piece - and that it was well-received - because it's taken me down a whole new creative path with the Harwood sisters. Their stories have the potential to become magical and supernatural, and I can't wait to dive back into that project. Until then, you can read "Cold Again" and check out the rest of the December contributors.


  1. CONGRATULATIONS! Give yourself a pat on the back. Love that little bit of magic in your story. It should be interesting to see where you take this story. I have always loved books set in the Civil War, but yours is going to have a totally different vibe from what I have read before. Looking forward to seeing the final product!

    1. Thanks! It's baby steps, I say. I'm really excited to work more on the story - I'm thinking it'll end up being a trilogy.
