Attention: Mystic_Writer

Dear Mystic_Writer,

She dashed out of the glass box and across the boardwalk onto the pier, her feet making a hollow drumming noise on the weathered planks that matched the thundering beat of her heart. In the darkness of late night, the end of the pier was invisible out ahead, and she lowered her chin to her chest over the child wrapped there, charging forward. For Sidney, for Sidney... Ramona chanted in her head as she ran toward a choice she was not certain she could make.

My short fiction story, from which the above excerpt was taken, is a harrowing glimpse into the nightmare of a loving mother, forced to make an impossible and life-altering decision. It poses the question: How far would you go to save the one you love? A question that we have all considered, and all hope that we must never answer.

I have been writing poetry and fiction for fourteen years, and have recently completed my first novel. I wrote for the campus periodical in high school as well as at University, and graduated in 2006 with a degree in English.

Attached is a copy of my short story 'The Choice'. I will be patiently looking forward to your response, at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your valuable time.
