Travel back in time...

Read my story The Return in issue four of Fantasia Divinity magazine - order it (pb/kindle) from (Kindle)/ (pb) and (Kindle)/ (pb).

In the fourth issue of Fantasia Divinity Magazine, we feature five stories by very talented writers. First, "What Color are Her Eyes" by Tyson West is a story inspired by the classic fairy tale Snow White in a modern ranch setting. Then in "Shoreside" by Vonnie Winslow Crist, a day at the beach is anything but for one woman who is torn between her duty to her family and the call of the sea. Next in "Not in the Stars" by Caroline Sciriha, a young woman journeys back in time and meets her inspiration. In “The Return” by DJ Tyrer, a woman must return to her childhood home following the death of her father, where she discovers a mysterious machine that takes her back to the one day she wants to forget the most. And lastly in "Bring Down the Sun" by Randy Hulshizer, a young girl who has a highly coveted gift seeks to escape the clutches of those who wish to use her.
