I have a short story in DON’T TOUCH THAT, this delightful SFF parenting anthology! I was excited to participate because so often in SFF parents are absent, dead, evil, or (if we’re lucky) just off adventuring on their own. It’s rare that we get to see them BEING parents while also having adventures! As an adventure mom myself, I’m always particularly excited to see characters like that, so getting to write this short story was extra fun.
A ton of really fantastic authors have contributed, most of them parents themselves! I’m honored to have my work appear alongside theirs. My story, “Called to the Office,” is about a hero mom who has to attend a meeting with the headmaster of the hero school because her kid (a student there) is in trouble. Contains a pragmatic badass mom, her sentient sword offering commentary from the peanut gallery, an impulsive but good kid, and some magical surprises. Enjoy!
