Dream of Crows
After going on a business trip to north Florida, you have strange dreams about something lurid and/or dangerous that happened in a cemetery next to Tate’s Hell Swamp. You try to remember and when you do, that’s all she wrote.
If you’re suggestible, don’t real this story. If you live in or near Tate’s Hell Swamp on Florida’s Gulf Coast, don’t read this story. If you’re planning going on a business trip to Carrabelle, avoid bars where a dark woman is waiting to approach you and invite you out to her house at the edge of a cemetery.
I’m happy to announce that the Spanish edition of my three-story set called Emily’s Stories will be available soon. (The English edition is available in paperback, audiobook and e-book.)
Emily Walters is a sharp, inquisitive fourteen-year-old north Florida girl who loves maps, her rusty old bike, and the forest behind her house. Sometimes her dreams tell her the future and sometimes her waking hours bring wise birds and other spirits into her life. In these three short stories, join Emily in her adventures and mysteries.
When her family vacations in the mountains in “High Country Painter,” a wise Pine Siskin tells her she must quickly learn how to paint dreams into reality to prevent an afternoon hike from becoming a tragedy.
In “Map Maker,” she’ll need her skills—and the help of a Chuck-will’s-widow—to a fight a developer’s plans for from bulldozing the sacred forest behind her house and replacing it with a subdivision.
In “Sweetbay Magnolia,” she’ll learn the secrets of her grandmother’s favorite tree, the crumbling almost-forever house down on the river, and why some ghosts would rather visit than haunt.
