I’m very excited to announce that my story “On the Other Side of the Line” is now live and free to read over at Fireside Magazine! It’s narrated by the fantastic C. S. E. Cooney and it has an amazing illustration by Amanda Makepeace.
This isn’t a happy story, but it’s one I felt I needed to write. It was fueled by loss and the looming grimness of our future. It was heavily influenced by some traveling I did where there was an international fence line and witnessing people on the other side standing of it, staring through the wires.
It’s not a happy story, but I’m happy with the way it turned out.
The dog in the story is based on a real one. He name was Tiger and he was the best. We lost him over a year ago and I still miss him dearly.
Oh! I almost forgot. The song I listened to on repeat while writing and editing this story was Now and Not Yet by Hammock.
Give your loved ones a hug tonight.
