“Into the Vast” has been released by YA Review Network. “All of my fourteen years, we have lived in the dark because of the Dragons. The stone walls of our cave hide us from them, and also hide the light from us. I open my eyes, I close my eyes: darkness…” Read the rest here.
“Hansel and Gretel” has been released by Solstice Literary Magazine. “In the light of the gibbous moon, beneath the thick boughs of ancient oaks, a girl pulled her brother from the gingerbread house, trailed by smoke that stank of burned sugar and flesh.” Read the rest here.
“Her Mother’s Skin” has been released by Soundings Review. “The leggy girl, on evenings when the wind was warm and wild, drifted away from the house and her chores, from the little ones and her mother’s long silences. As the wind tangled sand and sea grass through the girl’s hair, she climbed the cliff faces and explored their secret hidey-holes. Which is why she found her mother’s skin.” The rest can be purchased in the Spring/Summer 2013 issue.
