The lupines turn the meadow into a sea of purple this time of year. I catch myself staring out the window sometimes, aching to dive into all those flowers. It’s already been a year since my daughter and I took a long walk together amidst the lupines. She wandered ahead now and then, my white tank top a long gown on her tiny frame. I treasure the photos I snapped of her that day, and I’m honored to announce that this image has been chosen for the cover of issue 12 of Kindred magazine. I’m also thrilled to share that I have a piece of fiction being published in the same issue. It’s a short story entitled “Attempting Destiny.” If you’re interested in ordering a copy of Kindred, please head over to Anchor & Plume Press. Copies are currently available for pre-order and will be shipping in early June. Thank you for supporting them!
