Sand Dollar Wishes Posted on Writer Unboxed


My flash fiction story Sand Dollar Wishes, which is set in Morro Bay, California, is posted on Writer Unboxed’s 7 Sizzling Sundays of Flash Fiction.  I looked at the photo prompt and thought beach.  But I didn’t want to write about kids and kites.  Then I thought about my grandmother, who is 95. The last …
