Happily Ever After - Lightning Quick Reads

As a baseball fan, I was pleased to step in and pinch-hit as guest author over at Lightning Quick Reads. (That's about as "athletic" as I get!)

The theme - "Get Schooled" - was open to interpretation, and as my regular readers know by now, that often leads my dark and twisty imagination to places we don't want to travel without a flashlight. And maybe a crossbow.

Happily Ever After has no girlish giggles, no dog-ate-my-homework hijinks. It does have a baby, a homeless woman, and a sense of madness. And there is a schoolhouse. Just not the kind you'd ever want to attend . . . .

  1. Yay! And I loved your story. I just need to comment and share. (And figure out how to blow up times so I can have 5 more hours in the day.)

    1. Thanks so much, Crystal! And thanks for recommending me.

      If you had five more hours in the day, you'd probably manage to take over the world. :)

  4. Sounds a little like The Birds - at least that's what I think of when I think of a creepy schoolhouse. Thanks for the info!
