Romance Short Story Published

on January 27, 2011

My contemporary romance short story, “The Play Must Go On”, is published on Cup of Romance. I had a great time writing this story. This past Fall, Noa Wheeler, editor for Henry Holt, gave a writing workshop as a part of the Seattle SCBWI Professional Fall Series. In the workshop, we wrote on the theme, “Things Are Not as They Seem.” I wrote a flash fiction piece, “Night Crimes” which after I worked on it and revised, was published on Sarah LaPolla’s Glass Glasses Blog. “Night Crimes” can be seen here.

I liked the theme of “Things Are Not As They Seem” and how the fairy tale “Beauty and The Beast” so perfectly captures that theme. This train of thought led me to the writing for “The Play Must Go On.”
