Christmas Oranges

I have a new short story, “Christmas Oranges,” published today at Cultivating Oaks. It’s based on a work-in-progress, tentatively entitled Brookhaven. You can read the story here; the entire Christmas issue can be accessed here.  

The story, like the work-in-progress, is historical fiction, set in 1863 to 1865 during the Civil War, the Reconstruction period, and 1915. It is loosely (very loosely) based upon events in my own family, although the characters are entirely fictitious.

Glynn, I tried to leave a comment at the actual publication site, but couldn't be sure that it took. You have certainly enchanted me with this story, and I can certainly see a novel emerging in the aftermath. Repeating myself from the comment I attempted to leave, you've inspired me to stretch myself and explore other ventures into serious writing. God bless you always!

Martha, thank you. That's good news.
