A Literary Surprise!

We're home from St. Louis after a long, long day of driving, and were welcomed by two very happy dogs, an indifferent cat, and a pile of mail. Among the post was a surprise: several lovely copies of my college's literary journal containing one of my works -- a play that I wrote for a class I took in my next-to-last semester.

My instructor had encouraged me last winter to submit it to the journal, but I'd heard nothing more until about a week and a half ago when the instructor told me it that it actually was chosen for the journal and printed. I'm pleasantly surprised!



You can read Aurora Magazine, and my play, Barren Courage, here!

I've missed you all, and all your blogs, and can't wait to begin catching up tomorrow!
