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.
