New Podcast Available – Hear Me Read

Cover of Bad Ass Fairies 3: In All Their GloryThe new Broad Universe podcast is available, this one focusing on “changelings and transformations.”

BroadPod “Rapid Fire Readings” feature five or six authors reading for five or six minutes each from their work.

Authors included in this month’s podcast are Carol Berg, E.F. Watkins, Daniele Ackley-McPhail and Anne Wilkes, and of course, me. I’ll be reading from Selk Skin Deep.

Selk Skin Deep was published in Bad Ass Fairies 3: In All Their Glory (an anthology of stories about fairies, which harkens back to their roots. You’ll find no Tinkerbelles in the bunch).

Selk Skin Deep was inspired by the true-live tragedy of the explosion on board the U.S.S. Forrestal, an aircraft carrier which exploded off the coast of Vietnam in 1967. My story is about Cade Owen, who joined the U.S. Navy trying to alleviate the boredom from his nearly immortal life. Cade is a selkie – a shape shifter who is both man and seal. In Selk Skin Deep he learns about sacrifice, and what it means to be human. It’s my tribute to U.S. Service Men and Women.

Listen to the Broad Universe Podcast here.

If you’re not into podcasts, I’ve made the first five pages of the story available via PDF. Here’s a link to the Selk Skin Deep excerpt.

  • Hi Kelly,

    I’m a bit late to the party here I know – but congrats on this! And thank you for sharing it; my parents are all former service members (both stepparents and biological), as well as my husband, so this kind of writing always brings a smile to my face. Most excellent, most excellent. 🙂

    Best,
    A. R.

    • You’re welcome, A. R. There are lots of service folk in my family, too, spanning back generations. (Writing military stories is just one way I try to show my love for them and those they serve(d) with.
