Christmas in September

Good news! My short story "Silent Night" will be included in the Dreamspinner Press 2009 Mistletoe Madness Christmas anthology! Good things come in small packages, and this story came in just over the minimum 5,000 words.

A blizzard hits Detroit, and two team mates from an independent wrestling promotion find themselves stranded on Christmas Eve. After the airline offers them a chance to ride the storm out in a private lounge the men find a way to pass the time. Jonah is the acknowledged star of the company, a young daredevil who is known as the "whore of the locker room" while Max is the older declining star on his way out. Max has a steady mate at home, but he's longed for Jonah for years. After he proves to Jonah that he doesn't consider him a whore, he changes his plans and flies home with Jonah on Christmas morning.

I'm so pleased!
