Winners of the Phoenix Rattler-does your story have bite? contest

Several months ago, I found out I was a double finalist in the Phoenix Rattler - does your story have bite? contest. The winners have been announced and, as you read on my previous post, it wasn't exactly how I hoped it would turn out, but after the initial disappointment wore off, and after a half gallon of ice cream, it's all good! I really am thrilled to have been a double finalist and don't take it for granted at all.

I have to give a special shout-out to my friends and fellow finalists, Michelle Shocklee, Susan Miura, and Deb Anderson. WOOT!
