I've been putting together a collection of my non-romance fantasy short stories. Three of these were previously published. My plan is to make the collection a freebie with a Creative Commons license, and offer it as a bonus to people who sign up for the mailing list I use to share news of my fantasy stories for young readers. These aren't necessarily children's stories, but the first two have child protagonists, one employs fairy tale motifs and they are all certainly odd.

Wedding the Wind; Four Odd Tales

* The title story, Wedding the Wind, turns out to be an origin story for Mary Poppins, as a new Mary takes up the mantle, er, umbrella of her predecessor.

* Tess on the Stairs is an ultra-short ghost story that will make sense only to those familiar with the oeuvre of the Grateful Dead. (Originally published in Spinning Free)

* Survival, in which one monster relates to another, placed in the Minneapolis City Pages' Annual Fiction Contest some years ago and was originally published in that periodical.

* Without the Wicked Witch consists of a speculation in which psychological health makes everyone happier and fairy tales pathetic. (Originally published in Daughters of Nyx).
