DANCING WITH DELANEY
I wrote this story as a way of holding onto the beauty I saw in one family's grief. The story was published in The Caterpillar, a children's literary magazine in Ireland. It is only available for purchase.
In this lively children’s story, twin sisters spend an afternoon with their grandfather and an unexpected guest—a duck in the middle of winter. The spirited illustrations are done by Erin Rankin (my sister-in-law), who captures the characters and their surroundings with originality and fresh detail.
THE VERY LONG & BORING SICKNESS
This story is about the isolation of illness and a friendship between two boys. (It is not intentionally related to COVID.)
