About Andrea’s Story

Every Friday, I post a piece of flash fiction on my website. That is really going to be the bulk of what this post is about. However, I want to start off by sharing my recent entry in my travel blog, Hopscotch and Woolgathering, which is mostly just a fun musing of my misadventures in trying to pick my mom up from the airport.

Now, about Andrea:

Andrea is 36 years old and lives in Washington State. After some upsets with the law, she started life anew in Spokane, working in fast food while she put herself through community college and on to university. Now, in her mid-thirties, she is well off in her position as an assistant to one of Washington’s billionaires and socialites, completely transformed from the hoodlum she was in her twenties.

This story, this piece of flash fiction is not about Andrea now. This story takes place 22 years previous, when she was finding herself, when she was discovering what the costs of freedom are, and just how chained her life was before.

This is Andrea’s Story.

Andrea is a part of my novel-in-progress, the very novel I started for NaNoWriMo 2014. It is nearing its finished stages and will hopefully be released into the world. Andrea is one of the main characters, who finds her life once again entangled with Brooke–the knot thought to be unstrung.
