My short story, The Cocoon, is a quiet, slowly-unraveling account of horrific violence. It's one of my favorite yet unpublished short stories, and is now a finalist in Criminal Element's latest contest, Wishful Thinking.
You can read the first 250 words , and if you like the excerpt, vote for the story here.
The Cocoon is one of the works I'm most proud of, so this contest means a lot to me. Your help and support would be greatly appreciated.
