Short Stories & Anthologies



Up and coming western author, Douglas Osgood, said, “This might be one of the most powerful stories I’ve read in the last decade. I love it.”

Nothing ten-year-old Melody has ever been told about her life is true…including her name.

After a fire destroys her home and kills her mother, she journeys to live with family she didn’t know existed.

She discovers her real identity and finds a home she hadn’t known she was missing.
