Fun and Creativity

I have always liked to create things. When I was young(er?) I would make things out of wood and paper and whatever else I had at hand. I’ve also always written stories. Granted, most of my stories were childish and not terribly good, but I was able to write them and feel good about what I’d put on the page. That is even more true now, although I put the added pressure on myself of wanting the stories to be publishable.

The first of those anthologies was titled Lucky or Unlucky: 13 Stories of Fate. I thought it would be fun to talk with Nila White who is the editor and publisher of the anthology.
