Short Stories

In March 2016, my writing partner Jenna and I began a short story project. You can find a fresh, new story posted every week over at:

Band of Dreamers: A Collection of Short Stories

Look at the hashtag at the bottom of each post to see who the story is by! Jenna and I alternate weeks and work from a list of prompts we created that swing wildly from whimsical to emotional, from insightful to outlandish, and everything in between. We always appreciate feedback!

(Note: Jenna and I have been caught up in our novel-writing pursuits, so our short story project has taken a backseat for the time being. We do hope to return to it soon, though, and appreciate everyone’s interest!)
