My new short story, “Luck, Be a Lady” is now live at Modern Retro Woman.  The assignment was to write a short-short story based on the above picture from a 1958 Saturday Evening Post. Fun!

My story starts out, “With a swish of her satin skirt, Midge slid into her usual spot at the roulette table. The croupier—a dark-haired young man with eyes green as emeralds—smiled at her. ‘You’re back.'”

Read the rest here.

Many thanks to Julie-Ann at Modern Retro Woman for publishing my story!
