My short story, Viva Las Vegas, is a part of the anthology, and I’m honored to be a part of that book. Linda Fisher, the publisher, said that all the stories in the book were prize-worthy and that makes me smile. Here’s a little something about the book (my story highlighted in bold):
Twenty-five captivating stories are included in Hot Flash Mommas. Authors from across the U.S. submitted their fiction stories about women living the adventure of midlife. Award-worthy stories fill the pages of Hot Flash Mommas, the first Shaker of Margarita book.
