March Story Feature: Brierly's Lilies

"Brierly's Lilies" fist appeared in Dragons, Knights, and Angels in April 2006. Readers called it, "A compelling story . . . Very well done . . . I loved the descriptions in this piece. Great description of the cockatrice. Okay...I confess this made me teary-eyed too."

"Lilies," Brierly had said with a wistful smile, so Tiann went out for lilies. She jogged home in the warm spring sunshine instead of porting, and saw by chance the old woman standing in the path. 
 
I hope you enjoy "Brierly's Lilies." Just click the title to download the PDF. Leave a comment and let me know what you think.
