"Hybrid Love" in Lies With Occasional Truth

On-line magazine Lies With Occasional Truth has published my short story "Hybrid Love". I was about to retire this piece last year when I gave it a  tweak and sent it out. Tada!

I was taking a creative writing class at the time I wrote this. When I met with the teacher to discuss my story he very seriously said to me, "After reading your story, I wondered if you might be crazy." Thankfully, he wasn't my first writing teacher and I had an ounce of confidence to tell him I wasn't and that I gave my readers a little more credit than he was willing. I dropped the course as he was unprofessional with other students as well.

  1. Thanks for posting the link to your piece Julie; I really enjoyed reading it. I admire the way you're able to make the short piece work: it's one of the hardest things to do. It has been a pleasure reading your stuff; I'm looking forward to more! Bravo :-)
