As promised, here is the link to Literary Mama – newest home to my odd little piece, “Gut Roiling”.
One of the things people often ask regarding certain stories is how much of my own reality are they based on. This one is no different. When it comes to fiction, I like to take elements of truth and play with them. Twist them into something beautiful, or sad, as the story requires.
