Thin Ice

More shameless self promotion. My story Thin Ice is now up at Flashes in the Dark. It was inspired by a true event that happened to my mother when she was a girl waaaay back in the 1930's. I actually wrote a non-fiction piece about the event about twelve years ago and sold it to the Good Old Days nostalgia magazine. That was the first time I ever sold anything I had written. Now, years later, I've taken the same basic premise and put a horror spin on it. Mom grew up in Illinois, but in keeping with the supernatural element of the story, I moved things to the South West, Arizona in particular.

The title alone has my interest : )

Nice story. I like the addition of [spoiler] to things. You don't see [spoiler] out and about much in horror fiction these days.

I always like a good story of [spoiler]. (Nods to Mr. Reynolds.) Nice one.

Agreement. That was creepy and well done.

I left a comment on the page too, but really liked that story and your other flash too.
