My short story, "Finding Fire," is part of this anthology. :) I had a wicked amount of fun writing this one, and I was so pleased that Rich and Jess liked it! Sexy men, fire, Spring Break, Valencia, Spain's celebration of Las Fallas... and magick - all things I love. Watch for it coming out May of this year!
Also, look at the cool artwork just for my story!
Holiday Magick: 20 Holiday Stories with a twistPeople don't usually question holiday traditions or their origins, but maybe they should. Over centuries, explanations of how and why holidays exist may have been lost or changed.
Some holiday histories might only be known by a few individuals. Ancient magic spells could have influenced how we celebrate today. Fairies, zombies, or demons may have shaped our holidays.
Consider the following...
Why do people give red roses and cards on Valentine's Day?
Is there more to the story of Purim than is traditionally told?
Why do people wear green on St. Patrick's Day?
What happens to spirits that are captured during the Japanese Doll Festival?
Where does Santa get his helpers?
You may think you know the truth, but you can't be too sure.
