First Place

 I entered the Bedford Library Short Story Contest. Deadline was September 1st.
 Saturday, September 15th - Bedford Library Evening with the Authors. My shiny face was on the poster and I did get to read an excerpt from My Zoo World. The other authors represented fantasy, poetry, romance, and suspense. Nice variety and fun reads.
 Here I'm chatting with Rebecca Balcarcel  - excellent poet
And then Amanda Green (VP of Friends of the Library) announced the winner of the short story contest - Whoa! That's my name. I accepted a check from Jim Davidson - a Bedford council member and Friend of the Library.  Very exciting. My tale is called "Bumper Car Life", and I am working on compiling my shorts stories for a collection.


  1. Congratulations! That is wonderful news. And you got paid, too! Even better!

  2. Congratulations! And I'm not surprised! :)
