Over the years, my work has been in the grandfathers and godmothers of journals (Brevity, Alaska Quarterly Review, Gulf Coast, Image, etc). Then I took a hiatus (I stepped into that quicksand known as “writing a novel.”) A couple of months ago, I decided to jump back into short stories, and—ha!—I got a story accepted for publication. I am giddily happy with my story appearing in this month’s issue of Crack the Spine.
The story is called, “A Nun and a Baller Walk into a Bar.”
It’s the first story in the issue. It’s illustrated with a graveyard. The journal cover is beautiful.
The story is about grief (well, that’s familiar.)
It has a lot of profanity in it. Grief does that to you.
Please click on the link for the story and give it a read.

That’s a great story, Ellen. Congratulations. I love the – sort of – happy ending.

Thank you for reading! It’s a new story, meaning I wrote it in 2017. 🙂 I have only recently come to realize how LONG it takes me to get work out there!
