(A short story of about 6400 words—about 25 minutes of reading for the average reader)
Misti Wolanski has always loved to play in fantasy land, though it took her a while to realize that her mind games were fun enough that others would want to join in, too. In her spare time, she likes crocheting and knitting jewelry, baby clothes, and small toys. However, unlike the narrator in the popular-on-Wattpad A Fistful of Fire, she does not embroider.
She also writes dystopia (as Cara Lee), dark fantasy for adults (as Carralee Byrd), and space opera (as Misty White).
