Announcing My Stories in Sci Fic, Fantasy, and Romance Anthologies

anthology1 anthology2I am proud to announce that my stories, “Deadline” and “The Path to Rainbow Bridge” have been accepted to be included in two anthologies being published on September 16th by Solstice Publishing.

“Deadline,” in the Project 9 Anthology, is a Sci Fic story with somewhat of a Twilight Zone theme. It tells the tale of Susan Shaffer, a student and Features editor of the college newspaper at fictional Brockton University. After falling out of her dorm bed one morning, Susan experiences some strange shifts in time and faces much confusion and fear until she discovers what is happening to her.

The Path to Rainbow Bridge” for the Realms of Fantastic Stories anthology is one that is close to my heart. It features a cast of cats, some of whom are based on my own deceased pets. When Tom the gatekeeper assigns Shadow to gather Kate’s fur family together because her elderly Siamese is scheduled to arrive on Rainbow Bridge the following day, Shadow is in for a special surprise.

If either or both of these stories sound interesting to you, look for their anthologies being released September 16 with other Sci Fic and Fantasy tales by Solstice authors.
