New Story: "The White Bird"

New Story: “The White Bird”

Those of you who are interested in fairy tales (hello, Mr. Pond) might have already heard of an online magazine called Enchanted Conversation.

Guest Post on The Cult Next Door

Guest Post on The Cult Next Door

Here’s one of those writing gigs I mentioned. A while ago, I was invited to contribute a guest post to a blog called The Cult Next Door that deals (appropriately enough) with issues of cults and spiritual abuse. The title comes from the fact that the author was for many years a member of a […]
