Happy to announce my modern-day Peter Pan story, “Lila,” has been accepted for Dragon Soul Press’s
forthcoming anthology, Timeless 2: twists on fairy tales. Many thanks to fellow Peter Pan story writer Melissa Snark
for catalyzing this story via Indie Artist Press’s proposed Peter Pan anthology. That project ended up not happening, but I’m jazzed the story has found a new home. Many thanks too to fellow SF&F writer Erik Grove for the beta read and excellent revision suggestions, as per usual.
It’s been a hankering of my fan fic writer’s heart to do a Peter Pan story for years, every since reading The Child Thief a modern-day Peter Pan novel by artist Brom. Unsurprisingly, I found the art in the book amazing. The story had some very interesting ideas, but it also made me think how I might go another way if I were playing with Pan lore, and so eventually I did, keeping rather closer than Brom to Barrie’s original story. It’s been a gratifying journey.
