My short story Down by the River was featured last June in the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences Tales from the Archives podcast. A lot of great writers have been featured on that podcast, so it was a thrill for me to be in their company. I set this story in my hometown of Afton, New York in the 1890’s. Two of the characters were actual people from the village’s history. I had a lot of fun writing this. I hope you enjoy!
