A Contest Winner!
I'm thrilled to announce that my short story, Trumped, has won a monthly writing contest by Stars & Staffs. The main character of the story was inspired by an artist I know. He recently completed a piece that I fell in love with. I have a framed print of the art, and I referred to it often when writing the story. It was one of those rare instances as a writer where the idea immediately came to me and the story flowed from the very beginning. It was a ton of fun to write. You can read the story on the Stars & Staffs site.
