CARRIE’S SHORT STORIES CAN BE FOUND IN THE FOLLOWING BOOKS:
New in February 2019, Mardi Gras Pieces: A Collection of Short Stories, a Mobile Writers’ Guild Anthology. “Masked Flaws”, a prequel short story to The Possession Chronicles, is one of more than a dozen Mardi Gras themed stories set in Mobile, Alabama, the birthplace of Mardi Gras.
Told through the point-of-view of Edmund Easton, “Masked Flaws” takes place the winter before Perilous Confessions (December 1903-January 1904.) Want the backstory of Edmund joining Mystics of Dardenne and their infamous masquerade of 1904? Read it in this one-of-a-kind collection by local Mobile area writers. Proceeds go to Mobile Writers’ Guild to help sponsor programming and literary outreach.
Community. Courage. Compassion. Hometown Heroes: A Christmas Anthology brings you five Christmas romances that celebrate everyday heroes. From paranormal to contemporary to historical there’s something here to fill everyone with the spirit of the season. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Cajun Navy Relief, an organization dedicated to helping neighbors in distress.
“Courtship and Courage” is Carrie’s short story addition to this anthology. Witnessing the race riots before the soldiers left for Cuba during the summer of 1898 didn’t stop Claire O’Farrell from opening her heart, but it prevented her from wanting to share it. The stormy Mobile Bay winter proves the right catalyst for Joe Walker to prove his devotion to the woman he loves, though Claire is determined her choices have made her unworthy. Picking up the winter after Fortitude takes place, those wishing to know what happened to Claire O’Farrell and Joe Walker after the book ended should be pleased with this new adventure. Reading Fortitude first isn’t necessary, but it will make it more enjoyable.
“Of Goats and Gators”, the short story that launched the idea for Fortitude, is included in the first ever Mobile Writers’ Guild anthology. Carrie has been an active member and officer in Mobile Writers’ Guild since 2010, serving in such capacities as president, vice president, and Young Author committee chairwoman. Be sure to check out this eclectic mix of writing from the diverse members and friends of Mobile Writers’ Guild. Proceeds go to Mobile Writers’ Guild to help sponsor programming and literary outreach.
