Submitted to the NYC Midnight Short Story Competition (2014). My first short story writing contest.
My task: write a mystery story about pharmaceuticals involving a substitute teacher.
Update: I didn’t make it out of the first round with this story, but did earn an honorable mention (which I suppose I’ll take considering this was my first competition).
A year ago, Martin Anthony’s life was forever changed. Until today, he had no idea just how much.
