EXCERPT
A cat’s howl. A woman’s cry. The raucous laughter of boys on the verge of manhood, the cruelest and most dangerous of ages. With a sigh he resumed his pace. He was the Wanderer and he would do what needed doing before doing what he needed.

    This was my first print sale! I still remember where I was when I opened that acceptance letter…

    It is also the first published story that includes my Wanderer character… though it is the “last” in his story arc… detailing what happens to him at the end of his long journey.

    Out of all your stories this one is one of my favorites so far. Haven’t read them all yet, slowly getting there though.
