Riley (A Purple Cats in Space Adventure)
This was a microstory (500 words) written in response to a contest on a Facebook group. No, I didn’t win, but it was fun coming up with the tag at the end.
A short story where I first experimented with the concept of the ticking clock for suspense. The character served me so well I later resurrected him as one of the leads in my online novel, Finder’s Keeper.
