Am very excited at having my first short story accepted for publication. "Harmony Thicket and the Persian Shoes" will appear in the Dreaming of Djinn Anthlogy, edited by Liz Gryzb and published by Ticonderoga Publications in April 2013.
" This anthology will explore romantic Orientalism through a speculative
fiction lens. You might find lost cities, magical lamps, mummies,
thieves, intrepid explorers, slaves, robotic horsemen, noble queens,
sorcerers, outcast princes, harems, dancers, djinn, assassins and even
smart-talking camels and cats, set in exotic Persia, Egypt, Arabia, the
Ottoman Empire, or a modern incarnation of these. More information on
the exact mysteries contained will be revealed shortly."
I can reveal that my story involves a pair of magic persian shoes, a love spell, and vintage shopping - the three great obsessions of my life - shoes, romance, vintage haha.
