Most kids my age were into Jenny McCarthy. Not me. I was all about Wednesday Addams. (I'm still waiting for the day when I meet Christina Ricci so I can tell her we share a birthday.)
Until then, I'm grateful that Defenestration Humor Mag gets me and decided to publish my Addams Family fan fic.
Sometimes people read my stories aloud better than I do.
This is one of those moments.
Listen to Marguerite Kenner give a killer rendition of my story ‘There Are No Marshmallows in Camelot’ over at Cast of Wonders.
Laticia Andrews, seven, accidentally catches the wizard Merlin in her princess house, like a bug in a bottle. Now she has some demands . . .
This podcast marked a puh-retty darned important moment for me. When I first heard Ms. Kenner read my introduction and discuss my upcoming book from Simon & Schuster, I felt like an author for the first time. It was neat. Thanks, Marguerite.
Everyone else, I hope you enjoy.
My story, The Gargoyle and the Grotesque, is now available to purchase in this manatee milk-covered edition of Latchkey Tales!
The story is an argument between a gargoyle and a grotesque about whether to protect the tourists of the Biltmore Estate or let them be eaten by the demons in the surrounding woods.
(The Kindle edition is way cheaper.)
I answered my agent's boiler plate questionnaire! I think it and I were just as surprised by my answers.
