The You Belong Collection – Writings and Illustrations by Longmont Area Residents, was published April 9, 2012, by the Longmont Public Library, in honor of local Colorado authors and National Library Week. My short story, “Tail Gunner,” a Twilight Zone homage to WWII tail gunners, was included in the anthology (page 78). Currently it is only available through the Longmont Public Library, but is expected to be available through Amazon.com in the future. Copies may be purchased through:
The You Belong 2016, Words and Images from Longmont Area Residents! anthology was published September 8, 2016. The release of the fifth anthology was in conjunction with their library festival, and a handful of us read from sections of our stories on September 8th. All proceeds from the book go to supporting the Longmont Public Library. My entry into this year’s anthology is my story, “Broken Windows.” It’s an emotional and tragic tale of a woman’s reconciliation with her dead father.
