rosaliekempthorne's picture

I write these days a cacophony of genres: fantasy, sci-fi, mainstream, literary, some poetry every now and then. Novels, short stories, novellas, and whatever might fall in-between. I joined ABC Tales in May of 2014, and appreciate the forum it gives me to write and experiment, and even to include my strange little illustrations next to my work. 

You won't see a lot of my stories published anywhere else just yet, but please check out a few of these sites:

In the Orchard

I would go out there to watch her every day. Partly because I was fascinated by her, and envious of her, intrigued in equal parts by her strange...
