Breaking News: This is No Longer the Expensive Hobby I Feared It Was

So I have a bit of good news to share. I’ve been sitting on it for quite a few weeks months, yet telling everyone I know about it.

I can no longer consider writing to be an expensive hobby that was draining both my soul and my bank account, because  as of this week, someone has paid me to publish a little short story of mine.


This is not my first paid writing piece, just my first paid YA fiction piece. Once upon a time, or a million years ago I had a short-lived career as a travel writer.  Years before that I had an adult flash fiction story, “Stalking Mr. Right,” published in Fiction Fixbut that was for glory, not for cash.

But I digress.

Back in August my young adult short story “The End of Them” was accepted to be published in the University of Washington literary journal, Stratus. Well, it’s finally been published.

I don’t expect anyone to buy it, but you can read it free here. My story is on page 25. The rest of work in the journal is pretty awesome too.
