My story, “Get the Door, It’s Dominique,” has taken 1st place in the YA category in the WIN:Shorts Competition by Smartwriters.com. Judge Marilyn Singer wrote, “When was the last time you read a great Girl Vs. Satan yarn? Well, “Get the Door, It’s Dominque!” featuring a potty-mouthed heroine, a demon, and a Cadillac as main characters, is one! Dominique, come on in!”
I’m most tickled. Especially because I wrote the story as a warm-up to a novel with the working title of THE LACK, which is about marching bands, race relations, identity, school mascots, and of course, love.
