The lovely folks at Enchanted Conversation accepted my flash fairy tale “Penny the Poisonmonger: An Origin Story” and it’s live today! I love the artwork they chose to illustrate the story, so I’m going to post it everywhere possible. Ha!
Lots of people helped shape this story. It began as a prompted assignment in a recent YeahWrite Super Challenge, and then went through two workshops and several fantastic beta readers. I’m grateful to be part of such a supportive community of writers and artists.
The star of my story, Penny, is a fantastic cook. After a lifetime of disappointments, she is finally pushed over the edge by a simple piece of burnt toast. I hope you enjoy the story!
