ABOUT THIS SHORT STORY


When Cal is “sentenced” to spend her summer outside with a bunch of gawky kids and stinky cows, she’s certain there is no worse punishment. Life without her computer is no life at all. All her friends, at least the ones that matter, are online. There’s no one in the real world Cal wants to spend time with. Until she meets Troy. But he’s not in the real world either. Or is he?

ABOUT LOUISA SWANN


While “discovering” herself as a writer, Louisa experimented with a variety of day jobs, including slush reader, editor, and managing editor, gaining insider information on the world of writing and publishing. At the same time, she built her writing skills by not only writing, but taking classes, attending conferences, chatting with other writers, and … writing some more.

Louisa is the chaotic imagination behind a wide variety of writings, from Star Trek short stories to quirky fantasy, from humor-laden tales to dark, shadowy noir, the kind of imagination that resulted in nightmares when she was small, “stage plays” when she was a teeny bopper (do they even use that term anymore?), angst-filled poetry in her teens, and short stories and novels when she finally realized that same imagination could actually prove useful. Modern “country/western” comes to life under the pen name Jonesey Carlson and dark fantasy/noir under the pen name Lisa Gaines — everything else is Louisa’s “game.”
