Story Sale - Liesel

I am delighted to announce that my short story, Liesel, has been accepted by John Benson of Not One of Us for a future issue, possibly October 2020.

Here be an extract:

Liesel Jane. A chorus calling her name as the local kids, her friends, tried to keep up with her sprint, with the rush and joy of the girl with flame-red hair and freckles, the girl who used up seventy-years of energy by her thirteenth year.

No one sang her name now. Those who remembered it whispered Liesel Jane then looked over their shoulders as if a demon waited to suck the life from their bones.
