My original story, The Extraordinary Adventures of the 25 Year Old Birthday Muse, has been recognized as a semi-finalist in the prestigious 2005 William Faulkner Creative Writing Competition!
The story is an 18,000 word novella that tells the story of Kathy — the 10th Muse of ancient Greece — who upon blowing out the candles on her 25th birthday finds herself transported to a deserted beach, and is left to find her way back home. As you might guess, various “extraordinary adventures” ensue!
I feel very honored to have been recognized by the Faulkner Awards, and you can share in my small moment of glory by visiting the Faulkner site. Scroll down to the semi-finalists in the novella section, or just search for my name.
