So I found out this week that my flash fiction retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Steadfast Tin Soldier won second place in the Women on Writing Winter 2019 Flash Fiction contest.
The Steadfast Tin Soldier was always one of those fairytales I wanted to retell … with a happy ending. Steadfast is a contemporary retelling with a gender flip (she’s the soldier, he’s the dancer). Even better, it has an unapologetic happy ending.
You can click on through to the contest page to read it, along with the other two terrific stories that placed first and third. If you’re in the mood, you can keep going and read the top ten.

Sending you over to Cast of Wonders for my short story The Secret Life of Sleeping Beauty, along with a few other stories that put a new spin on an old tale.
Happy reading (and listening)!
Sending you over to Toasted Cake Podcast again for one of my own stories.
I first wrote The Burden of So Many Roses for one of Kazka Press’s monthly contests. The theme for this one was an undelivered Valentine.
I was thrilled when Toasted Cake picked it up for the podcast.
And yes, it’s a Valentine’s Day story, but I think it works if you’re not particularly feeling Valentine’s Day this year.
