Childhood’s Last Summer—My First Short Story—Has Launched

My first short story launched on Amazon on Thursday. I was incredibly touched by the messages and reviews from friends, acquaintances, and strangers. It feels good when someone you barely know buys your story. You know they’re not buying it because you’re family.

Here are some of the reviews and tweets.



If you want to support an indie author and buy my story, you can do so on Amazon.

“Isla and Lucas meet at a school sport when they are nine. Over art, soccer in the back yard, and brownies in the old Iverson kitchen, they form a rare and beautiful friendship that grows through the years. Everything is about to change. A coming of age short story.”

Soon I’d love to share how this process went with you all! I learned so much that I will be able to apply to the launch of Valley of the Stars and Calisbury Christmas, or whatever my first big book launch will be!
