I am ecstatic that my short fiction piece, Neverland, is a finalist in the Pixelhose writing contest. I’ve never won, nor been a finalist, in anything writing related, so this is exceptionally exciting for me. Below is an excerpt from the piece accompanied by my photography (also featured). The judges ultimately make the decision, but weight is also placed on the traffic to the webpage via the comments so I would LOVE for everyone to check it out and please comment/offer feedback. Thanks so much! You can read the full story here!

When the glow dimmed, she opened them to unimaginable enchantment.
