I’m pleased to announce that my story “The Octopus Garden” has been picked up for an octopus-themed anthology called Suction Cup Dreams to be released by the small press obsolecent.info. While any sale is reason to celebrate, this one is particularly gratifying because this story is about things near and dear to me: the ocean, coral reefs, and the Pacific Islands and their culture. This story has also traveled a long road, through many re-writes, as I struggled to get it right. In a way, it’s been like a long journey with a good friend, and now that friend has had something good happen to her.
