The Better To See You

A very quick note to any who might’ve missed it earlier.

Last Halloween my seven year old daughter Magnolia and I sat around her tent in her room telling each oher ghost stories. She came up with a doozy, a ‘spooky’ version of Little Red Riding Hood, in which the ghost of Red’s grandmother appeared to her to warn her not to visit the house.

I thought it was a neat idea, so I asked her if she’d let me write it out and submit it. I did, and it’s appearing in Dark Moon Diget #7 as ‘The Better To See You.’

In true collaborator fashion, she complained about the changes I made and demanded the lion’s share of the compensation.

Here’s a blog post the folks at Dark Moon did about it.

She was quite excited about seeing her name in print, and we spent last weekend working on a new story, a creepy little tale of her own invention involving lost hikers and moths….

I still hope for her sake she returns to her prior aspiration of owning a floral shop, but it seems she has a gift.
