Oregon coast in winter – and a reprint on the way

Seaside carousel

My husband and I had promised to take our boys to the beach sometime this winter, so today they got to experience all the gloom and fury that is the Oregon coast in February.  Turns out there was a windstorm while we were there, exacerbating the usual cold.  But we had fun overall, thanks to mostly indoor activities.

We made it to the Seaside Carousel Mall, and of all the carousel steeds, one of my sons chose – Seahorse!  After the ride he asked me if I liked the animal he’d chosen, and I told him about my latest story.

Speaking of marine life, my story “Exchange” appears under a new title, “A Coral Study,” in a new anthology of speculative fiction called Exchange Students.  It’s available for preorder now, in paperback or ebook.  The official release date is this Tuesday!
