"The Easter Prize" short story sale

Hi, I'm thrilled to say I have another short story sale. Yippie! "The Easter Prize" will be in the April issue of True Story magazine. (It's possible any of my titles could be changed.) This is a touching, emotional story about forgiveness, generosity and acceptance among different socio-economic groups. It contains a grown-up romance as well as some high drama among children at Easter, centered around a prize egg. When I was in 3rd grade, someone stole my prize egg. I was not happy, but I did get it back. :-) The other kids also teased me about my naturally curly hair. (See photo in a post below.) I won't give away what one has to do with the other.
;-) Hope you enjoy the story if you have an opportunity to read it!

PS Vanessa, please email me when you get Internet service and send me your new addy. :-)
