You can read "The Hero Garden" now.
The story follows a teenage girl on the verge of discovering her own power, as she grapples with the question: what's so great about being a hero, anyway?
This is my longest story published at 2,000 words -- although in spring my 5,600-word horror story is scheduled to come out in the anthology, "Dark Tales of Lost Civilizations," so it's not technically my first short story sale.
I hope you'll check out "The Hero Garden." And thanks so much for reading!
