New Curious Fiction Series: Leftovers

I’ve been threatening for a while to release another collection of short stories. I finally found the perfect venue for it on Curious Fictions.

Every Friday I’m posting a new short story in English and Spanish under the series title Leftovers. When I run out of short stories, I’ll publish the collection under the same name.

This week is “Cereal Killer,” a short story I wrote in a HWA writing workshop which first appeared in the 43nd issue of The Sirens Call eZine: Women in Horror Month 10.

It’s about a boy named Josh whose mom won’t win any mother-of-the-year awards, but she is good enough. When good enough isn’t enough, however, casual wishes become permanent regrets.

You can find my Leftovers series in progress at Curious Fictions here.
