This post is a bit delayed, but I’m thrilled to share that this month my first pro-sale goes live! My piece “Mother’s Rules for a Burned Girl” is up over at Flash Fiction Online, a magazine I’ve always adored. It’s so special that my first pro-sale debuts in this magazine because FFO has always been one of those places I dreamed about being accepted to.
The story is a short piece about dragons, the pull of fire, and confronting your abuser.
Here’s a peek:
When the dragon drops from the sky and torches the tiny fishing town, Rona does not approach. Instead, she grits her teeth and watches. She digs her fingernails into her palms until they bleed, tamping down her urge to run forward. “Remember the rules,” Rona whispers, watching the smoke.
