The 2nd PLACE WINNER in the July 2018 Word Weaver Writing Contest: MD Walker, “Where The Black Tree Grows”
If you read my novel, “Bayou Fire,” you know that both Marie Laveau and Delphine LaLaurie are featured characters … and real, historic people. This is an entertaining tale that shows a different aspect of both women. Congratulations to the author!
It is my pleasure to present to you the second place winner from the July 2018 Word Weaver Writing Contest, MD Walker’s “Where The Black Tree Grows.”
MD’s story was a blast to read. She hooked me from the opening and held me straight through to the end.
Have a good time reading this story. I’ll give you my reasons for why I liked it at the bottom of the post.
