Two people who’ve written off love and magic find a little of both on the longest night.
A 6,500-word Winter Solstice-themed short story
After inheriting her grandmother’s house in suburban Connecticut, Rina Minkin revives her witchy improv character to help pay for necessary home repairs. When Miguel Alvarez shows up at her front door with two kids in need of a Winter Solstice miracle, even cynical Rina can’t turn them away. And the longer she spends with them, the more she wants them to stick around.
Note: At the moment, these stories are only available to read on Radish Fiction while I consider how to compile and distribute these stories. I also plan to write more stories like these, deadlines permitting. Stay tuned, and make sure you’re subscribed to my newsletter for updates!
