Yay! Another publication! “Do You Hear the Coffin Bell?” appeared in TreeHouse Arts on September 14, 2019. It took me awhile to share this, because I was taking a writing hiatus, but I’m happy to be back! More publications are in the works, but this is the most recent one…
“Do You Hear the Coffin Bell?”
Premise: Mary Smith thought she found a love match in George Blackbourne–until he passed away from a fatal illness. She grieved for her dead lover, but not for the reasons anyone thought. She loved him, yes, until she found a secret that shattered his near perfect image–a mistress and his child.
Now Mary keeps a secret of her own as she goes through the motions, mourning for a man who splintered her heart into pieces. Until the coffin bell rings, and the dead returns to life, revealing an even darker truth.
This story originally appeared in The Blotter Magazine in January 2019.
