Wrote this short story as a bit of fun for Steve Upham's Estronomicon Christmas Special. To my delight, and surprise, he took it. You can read it now, here: http://www.screamingdreams.com/ezine/Christmas2009.pdf
I wrote this one in under a week, which is something of a record for me.
Currently writing the young adult book - typed up over 25,000 words now. Also working on a brand new short called 'The Edge of Sanity'.
