Release day for Long Hidden!

Long Hidden is one of the most amazing projects I've had the pleasure to participate in.  I'm honoured to be in the company of such great writers--and so excited that the book is finally available to purchase.

I can't be at the launch party in New York tonight, but maybe you can--it's at Alice's Arbor, from 4-6 pm, and a number of the other writers will be there!

Check out this gorgeous Julie Dillon cover:

My story is called "The Witch of Tarup".  It's set in Denmark in 1886.  I was lucky to have a fantastic primary source: a memoir written by my great-great-grandmother, and translated by one of her sons.  (Disclaimer: none of my family are witches, as far as I know!)  Here's how it begins:
Every town has its witch, or so the Midsummer Ballad says, but I had only lived in Tarup a fortnight and I did not know who the witch might be.
