    Excited to have my short story that takes place in South Carolina out today in this International Anthology.

    "The Culinary Chronicles of Caroline" explores the life of a woman with severe allergies, criticized by her family and ex-partners for her unconventional cooking. A misunderstanding lead to a hospital trip, an event that surprisingly blossoms into a story of acceptance, creative cooking, and love.

    Special thanks to the gifted writers of the Short Story Online group. Your invaluable support and insightful comments have played a crucial role in my growth as a writer.
