My story, Bats, has been published by Madness Muse Press. The anthology is called Narwhal’s Lament and features poetry and prose with an environmental theme.

Now available from Amazon.

The inspiration for the story came from my longtime friend, Tim Reed. 

He saw a video I shared on social media, of two bats circling my backyard in the twilight. I wrote, “My yard has a pair of bats who dance in the night sky every evening at dusk.”

That’s Tim on the left, from a few years ago.

Tim replied, “Sounds like a good opening line to a short story.”

Challenge accepted.

The idea remained in stasis while I finished the final revisions of my novel. As soon as that wrapped, I started writing Bats the next morning. Progress on it moved quickly. After a few revisions, I submitted it and was fortunate to have the story accepted by Madness Muse.

If you are interested in buying a copy of the anthology, it’s available at Amazon HERE.
