I’m happy to announce I’m part of an upcoming anthology with some writers I’ve read and admire.
Triptychs is the third book in the Mind’s Eye Series. The premise of the anthology was a unique and challenging one for me.
The book combines visual art and the written word. A photograph was given to three different writers, and each of us had to interpret the image and write either a story or a poem. Each photograph in the book, therefore inspired three different written pieces.
As a teaser, I thought to give a bit of context for how my two stories came about. When Triptychs becomes available shortly, I will provide the BUY LINKS and make a more formal announcement. (See below for details of how to pre-order for only 99 cents).

My story, “Last Call” was inspired by this scenic photograph.
I found the picture quite cheerful, but on the day I was writing the story, I was not in a particularly cheerful mood. As such, I twisted the image in my mind and created an ominous, mysterious tale about a woman who pursues sobriety.
Just when you thought it was safe to stop drinking … 🙂
“Swans” was inspired by the above unusual photograph. I struggled with this picture for some time before I came up with the idea of a young girl and her unique relationship with her parents. The story pays homage to Hans Christian Anderson’s “The Ugly Duckling.”
Despite my initial difficulty with the photograph, I think the tale turned out well, and I hope you’ll like it.
