My short, The Retribution of Elsie Buckle, was picked as part of Create50’s Twisted, Volume 1 anthology last year … And now it’s an audiobook, too!
The story of a woman who teaches her three daughters to kill, I loved the notion of a play on this phrase, ‘the family who SLAYS together, stays together’!
Besides, what self respecting woman hasn’t wanted to kill the man in her life at least once. Elsie is really just setting her daughters up to deal with any male-orientated problems they have in a patriarchal world! Right … Right?!?! 😉
Actually, I’ll tell you a secret. I’m married to a bloke and I actually like him. He’s my best mate. I’m not sure why I keep writing about women killing their husbands at the moment, but perhaps it’s just a stage I’m going through!
Anyway, I LOVE the reading here, especially how the narrator pronounces ‘ample bottom’! Seriously, listen out for it, gave me quite a chuckle. Click below for the audio, or on the pic above. Enjoy!
