My latest short story just appeared in Emerald Tales, a charming magazine dedicated to publishing short stories of all genres. The latest issue, (free pdf here opens in a new window) challenged each author to begin a story with the sentence “It was a bright and sunny day.” My contribution concerns a particular owl and the consternation she causes in her fellow forest creatures with her constant advice giving. It was a lot of fun trying my hand at a talking animal fairy tale, and I’m pleased Diana Lyles, the editor of ET, liked it enough to include it in her magazine.
