“View from Paradise” Short Story Published

I’m excited to announce that Independent Ink’s online journal just published my short story “View from Paradise.” This story was a Glimmer Train finalist and was rejected about 20 times (and revised many more times) before finding a home at Independent Ink. I’m grateful for the rejections because I think the story is better now, but I’m also very thankful that Independent Ink’s editors selected it for publication before the apocalypse.

Here’s the link to the story: View from Paradise

To celebrate, here are some pictures of the place that inspired the story, the Riviera Maya:

    • I hope it helps to bring back some memories of your trip. It is such a mystical place. Pictures and words probably don’t do it justice. Hope you also stayed away from the monkeys! 🙂

  2. Kudos, kiddo! Glad to see you enjoying the fruits of your labor….I’ve been too close to the ledge to write lately but I’ll try to scribble something one of these days 😉
