First Publication

February 8, 2010

My first published story has just appeared in print.  “Growing Feathers” has been published in the February 2010 issue of Stories for Children Magazine

I first drafted this children’s story way back in 2005 in a writer’s workshop.  It’s been through many rewrites since then, as I learned more about writing craft (in general) and the children’s market (in particular).  I even tried it as a picture book manuscript once, before deciding that it was better suited to the children’s magazine market. 

You can read it here at the Stories for Children Magazine website during the month of February. Scroll down and click on “Growing Feathers.”  Be sure to check out the amazing artwork by Ginger Nielson.
