Hither Hills

My short story “Hither Hills” was inspired by a very persistent seagull my husband and I encountered on our first visit to Montauk in 2013. He challenged me to write about our feathered friend and the result is an unlikely, inter-species (PG-rated) love story set in 1977.

I recorded voiceover of the story for an episode of the speculative fiction podcast Upbeat Tales. Listen to it here or wherever you listen to podcasts.
