We are thrilled to be including her short story, 'The Heart Tree' in volume one of 'Dark Heart'. 'The Heart Tree' is a bewitching tale of transformation and discovery.
"To make matters worse, the tree had come with no paperwork, no orderly tag to add to her binder of organized tags. She had no idea when it would bloom or why or how. She didn’t know if it produced fruit or when the best, most logical time to prune it would be. It had come only with a card. A maddening, simple, useless card that read: HEART TREE - USE WITH CAUTION. Foolishness. Rose had never heard of a Heart Tree. When she questioned the rude delivery boy, he assured her that this was the right card for this tree and told her to simply follow the instructions.
Instructions her foot!"
