“The Stories on their Faces”



My short story, “The Stories on their Faces”, has been published in the April 2018 issue of Bards and Sages Quarterly.

In this story Malla, an older woman who is leader of her people, tries to save them by breaking one of their oldest customs — a tradition that is an integral part of who her people are. The story is about her leadership, and the consequences she must face as she tries to protect them from a frightening future.
