As of today, I have a new piece of fiction published in the beautiful inaugural issue of The Young Raven’s Literary Review. “A Fruitful Tale” is the story of Toupee von Pear. One night, he is stolen from his comfortable tree by the Artist, a local oil painter. What follows is a tale about learning to love unwanted adventures and creating new and better possibilities out of disappointment.

My dear friend, Jenny Blair, did the illustrations for the piece. Not only is she brilliant with brush and paper, she is also brilliant with words. Check out her website here.
