Coming in November...

November is only a few short days away. I have a new story coming out in Fandangle Magazine, called "No Peanuts Allowed." I wrote this story because it's hard for children to understand how serious some allergies can be. It seems hard for some adults, too. There are a lot of children who enjoy eating peanut butter for lunch at school. But what about those children who have peanut allergies? Would you still try to sneak in a PB & J sandwich? No one would know, right? Anyways, what harm could one sandwich do? Erika learns that we have rules for a reason when the student with the allergy is exposed to some sticky peanut butter on a pencil. She understands the importance of following the 'no peanuts' rule and realizes it is not the new student's fault.

New for October

Although the weather isn't cooperating, October promises to be an exciting new month. I have two new stories online this month. The first one (rebus) is "Anna's Homemade Pizza." It is online for the month of October at Fandangle Magazine.

My second story, "It's a Dog!" is available online at StoryBox. This is a great new online story library created by the talented Kevin Scott Collier. Thanks so much to Kevin for all his great work!
