"All the Way Home"

I've decided to put my short story, "All the Way Home," up for free at Blair MacGregor Books.

In 2005, I spent over a week at the Writers of the Future workshop in Los Angeles. It was the first time I’d been away from my young son for any length of time.

One of the workshop assignments was to write a story in 24 hours, and the story had to contain certain elements we didn’t know about until the clock started ticking. So I tapped into a version of “write what you know,” and started a story about a mother who missed her child.

It is at once my most complimented and most rejected short story--the compliments and rejections coming from the same editor, in the same letter. And it is one of my personal favorites.
