In October 2015 I had my first piece of writing formally published by the Homeschoolers of Maine (HOME) e-magazine. The piece, entitled 'Remembering Apple Blossoms', won first prize in HOME's short story contest 2015, with the contest theme 'Remembrance'.

Here's what some people have said about 'Remembering Apple Blossoms':

  • Oh my goodness, I almost cried when I read your story. And I'm not a crier. Fantastic work!!! 

  • Aww, sad ending, but I love it!!

  • What a great story! It made me cry (which admittedly isn't hard). The last line reminds me of a quote - "The veil that hides the face of futurity is woven by the hand of mercy" (And I love the image of "furiously knitting")

  • I just read your story. Great job! I loved the imagery, especially the use of twilight. Such a sweet story!
