Like a Thorny Rose


I wrote this story some years ago and it won the Central Coast Writers 2011 contest.  I thought I did a good job with it and am glad to have it achieve new publication.  Beryl Belsky, editor of The Writer’s Drawer, kindly featured it in a recent post.  Sorry, the link is no longer active.
