Flowers in the Mud Published in After the Storm

My story “Flowers in the Mud” has been published in After the Storm. Link is here. It’s free to read and quite short.

This one is very much in the spirit of the stories in my collection Off the Beaten Path, in that it deals with places and situations most people in the western world don’t know about, but I am fascinated by.If you do read it, let me know what you think!
