Heather Rose Babcock...Writing to Exhale

Excerpt from my short story “The Dancing Bear”:

"The April moon has turned the city sepia.  Sepia sidewalk, sepia garbage and sepia trees.  Marlene’s eyes are sepia.  The sky has gorged itself all winter long on chimney smoke and exhaust fumes and it’s close to bursting.  Concrete itself never really changes but when the sky finally breaks, plump shiny worms, upside down ice-cream cones and pretty girls in flowery dresses will tumble out: splashing their colors all over the pavement.”

Excerpt from my short story The Trees Turned to Glass:

"Betty realized that when it came to relationships with other human beings, she would always feel alone.  And yet there was this place – this small special place inside of her – a place where quiet beauty was embraced, a place where memories became fantasies and where fantasies became memories.  Like a pebble, Betty could lose herself within this place, this opulent ocean, and yet even if the water were to one day reject her too, even if it were to cast her back up onto its shores, she knew that she would catch the light of the sun again.”-
