Not One of Us - Liesel


It's October and this Halloween month sees the publication of my story LIESEL in Not One of Us. I have a wealth of rejections from this fabulous magazine, which is edited by John Benson. A real motto of never give up. 

That last sentence is ironic, as I've pretty much given up writing at the moment. The pandemic? A broken brain? A seeing no point to it all? Who knows, I certainly don't. Maybe you'll see more stories from me and maybe you won't, but in the meantime, please support Not One of Us and buy a copy of the magazine.

As I sit at my kitchen table, leg jitterbugging with its usual anxiety, trying to work on a short story about giant typewriters and rotting meat, and despairing, I am proud to have at least accomplished the nurture and growth of this gorgeous flower.

Finally living up to my name.
