Day 11 of 25 Days of Debs and we hit my story in the table of contents. I know. 11-11-11 is some kind of lucky.
Anthology story: The Trouble With Firsts
The first time I rode a rollercoaster, I ended up with vomit in my shoes.
First dates, prom, and humiliation–not necessarily in that order.

The Trouble With Firsts story trivia:
- This story represents the first time I’ve written something on contract. That is, I agreed to write the story and signed the paperwork long before I had even a glimmer of an idea. And sure, no panic was involved with that.
- I brainstormed a whole bunch of firsts, but an idea hit me while I was unloading the dishwasher.
- The first time I saw the cover art, I knew I had to work that dress into the story somehow.
- The story begins and ends with vomit. (I know. Romantic.) I may have taken that sage writing advice “the end is in the beginning” a little too literally.
