New short story, “Bringing Them Home”

switchback issue 19If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you might have seen this already, but I just realized that I never talked about my latest publication here on the blog.

Earlier this month, my short story “Bringing Them Home” was featured in Switchback Magazine. It’s based on a true story that my mom saw on the news and told me about. I was so moved that I sat down and scribbled out my own version in one go. Certain elements have been changed from the real event, but I think the heart remains the same. And it’s a fitting tale for Memorial Day Weekend. It’s a thank you to our all service men and women.

My Husband’s Book


Welcome to New House 5. It’s not just the top floor of a brand new dorm. For 56 freshmen, it’s home. A place where friends are made and doors are always open. A place where hearts are broken and tears are shed.
