You can find my short story The Red Portal in the Secrets and Doors Anthology by Crimson Edge Publishing.
The Red Portal
Isabelle is tired of hiding what makes her unique. She is ready to stand out and stand up. As the Princess of Aylan it is her duty to lead her people by exposing the biggest lie of all. In order to do so, she must face her past and her mother’s abandonment head on. What she discovers may be more than her kingdom can handle.
Secrets and Doors
Open the door and unlock the secrets in eleven short stories from The Secret Door Society, an organization of fantasy and science fiction authors dedicated to charitable work. All proceeds from this anthology benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation in their quest to cure Type One Diabetes (T1D).
In these pages you’ll discover a modern woman trapped in an old-fashioned dreamscape, a futuristic temp worker who fights against her programming, a beautiful vampire’s secret mission disrupted by betrayal, a sorcerer’s epic battle against a water dragon, the source of magical mirrors—and more. There are tales for every science fiction and fantasy taste, including new works from award-winning authors Johnny Worthen, Lehua Parker, Christine Haggerty, and Adrienne Monson.
Join us in the fight against T1D as you peek into a world of magical and mysterious doorways—if you dare.
