The 2023 California Writer’s Club, Redwood Chapter Anthology includes my personal narrative on losing my hometown (Paradise, California) during the Camp Fire in 2018.

A bit of a detour from my normal fantasy/science fiction flash and short stories, I wanted to share my memories of what was lost as well as hope for rebuilding and rebirth.
