New Publication: Phantom Queen

It’s the last week of February already. How time flies.

I’d like to share another new story with you this week: Phantom Queen, published online at Crow & Cross Keys—a beautiful speculative fiction magazine that I encourage you all to read as often as you can.

Phantom Queen is a flash piece that started life as an entry for the Australian Writer’s Centre’s Furious Fiction competition last year. It did not place, yet grew from that beginning to a quietly magical, reflective piece that I love. Another example of words that needed time to grow, and a story that needed the right people to read it. 🙂

I am honoured it found its home at Crow & Cross Keys.
