2019 Rodeo « Carrot Ranch Literary Community

I’m thrilled to have taken part in this year’s contest. I managed to win second-place for the Three Act Story category, with my piece called “The Game.”

I love flash fiction and have learned so much from the weekly challenges. Many thanks to the judges and to Charli Mills for her support of our writing community in sponsoring this challenge.

These days she resides in the fantasy realm of the Faery Writer where she writes the magical poetry and stories that the fairy nymphs whisper to her in her dreams. Colleen won the “Little and Laugh” Flash Fiction Contest sponsored by the Carrot Ranch Literary Community on November 2017, and in 2018, she won first place for the “Twisted Travel” category. Colleen lives in Arizona with her husband. When she is not writing, Colleen enjoys spending time with her husband.
