My short story Leigh and William Hush was published in The Red Penny Papers this June. In her latest film, actress Leigh Wilder played justice-driven Judge Tree. Her lover was supposed to be Robert Leir, the city’s white knight. But instead she fell for William Hush, the villain.
I want to give special thanks to KV Taylor, the magazine’s lovely editor, who was awesome in guiding me through a rewrite of this story before accepting it for publication. This was a story I knew needed extra work, but was secretly hoping that I could squeak by. Luckily, KV (very sweetly) called me on it. She pinpointed exactly what the story was missing, what worked/what didn’t, and basically gave the motivational push I needed to sit down and fix it up. And I’m really happy I did. All thanks to KV.
