This trip was interesting because my sleeping arrangement didn’t workout, so for a week I slept on a random dorm mattress, and used my camera bag as a pillow.

Sealed with a Kiss

Published Oct 31, 2019 · 2,242 words (9 minutes) · 1 like · 133 views

Mystery Police procedural

“Sealed with a Kiss,” a little police procedural that was originally written for an anthology sponsored by a Canadian regional magazine. The story was accepted but the anthology never appeared, because the town in which the editor was based, Fort McMurray, was partly destroyed by a forest fire, which disrupted a lot of people’s plans. I’ve sent it here and there, but haven’t been able to place it, so I’ve decided to put it up on Curious Fictions as a free read.
