#SampleSunday – Blood of Mermayds

Taking the easy way out today and pointing you to the story I put up on Friday: “Blood of Mermayds”. Enjoy.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Outline the story of how two of your characters met. Not two major characters, but lesser ones. Maybe even extras. Say, those two women at that table over there in the background in the coffee house scene. Or those teenagers at the bus stop. Or the elves who made that magic bridle. How did they meet?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      Ashlyn, I’m not certain if my mermayd stories are fantasy or science fiction. While mermayds generally indicate fantasy, there’s no magic in this alternate-Earth, and the mermayds are biological realities in it, not supernatural creatures. Good question. I just call it “speculative fiction” and let it go at that. 🙂
