    One thought on “The Firedance Anthology”

    1. About a year ago someone challenged the stable of writers from Firedance Books to compose an anthology themed around the word Firedance.It was tougher than we thought. Months of blood, tears and sweat later - here it is. It's wonderful to be included in a project with so many writers that I admire and respect so much. Every one of their stories is beautifully crafted, memorable and riveting.I hope you'll enjoy and treasure this as much as I do.
