Storry in Quagmire Magazine

Another one of my stories is up! This time on Quagmire Magazine’s site. Quagmire is primarily a fiction and poetry magazine that is Canadian.

My story is called Jennifer and Aurora. Fort Smith and the north inspired me to write my fictional tale. There are no polar bears in Smith but there are ribbons of northern lights. They display the most marvellous colours — pinks, oranges and greens — as they chase each other silently across the sky. It’s a wonder they don’t make any sound, no hissing nor sighing nor whistling. Nothing at all. It certainly is a phenomenon of nature.

Setting the Scene

It's always interesting to see the interpretation of my story as an image. I like what the artist did. The northern lights look spectacular swaying over the main character. The protagonist I wrote about could be a man or a woman. I did picture the island as less mountainous, more deserted snowy beach. Either way, the graphic depicts an uncomfortable scene.

Watty Awards

This upcoming Saturday, Nov. 19, 2022, is the Watty Awards. The Watty’s is Wattpad’s annual awards program committed to celebrating the best stories around the world. My book, Nature Rules, is on the shortlist. There are many other wordwhile books vying for accolades so I’m not sure of my chances.

Good luck to us all!
