QueeReads gets spooky with this collection of three lesbian short stories written by S.Derkins - just in time for Halloween! Collection includes “As the Crow Flies”, “Just a Nibble’, and “Swamp Tales” read by Jill Karpick.
S. Derkins is more known for her lesbian romances and sci-fi but she enjoys anything that captures the imagination of her Muse. She has little control of how a story is created. The Muse pokes her so she puts her fingers (both middle fingers, I'm a properly trained hunt and peck typist) on the keyboard and the story unfolds as the characters choose.
