My Short Story is Published!



My short story, Lion's Heart, is published over at Hazard Cat today! It's very short and will only take a minute or two to read it and leave a comment.

This story is special to me because it forced me to write outside my comfort zone and outside my genre. It's told from a teen boy's perspective and the setting is Africa! Enjoy :)

Also, I entered a one line contest.

I had this picture to go on and I had to create one line of a poem. They used my line!!! You can read the full poem here.



Oh, and the winners will be announced tonight for the first round of prizes.

Overall a very good day!
