New Story on Inkitt Now!

My new story, “Unfamiliar Familiar” is now available to read on Inkitt!

Myrna needs just one more ingredient to finish her potion, and she’s sure this is the key to getting accepted into the illustrious Witch’s Academy. But even if she survives a trip into the dangerous Jaded Forest, she may come out with more than she bargained for.

I’m excited to release this new short story. I absolutely adore pure fantasy like this, and it was so much fun to write! I hope to be releasing new short stories as time goes on, so please subscribe to my blog to receive updates. You can also follow me on Instagram, where I post not just story news, but photos of my life as a homesteader. All of my stories are posted on Inkitt, so check out my profile there as well.

Hope you all have a pleasant evening!
