Unlocked: a Paper Lantern Writers Anthology

What tales are revealed when an old wooden chest is UNLOCKED?

An anthology of eight stories spanning seven centuries from Paper Lantern Writers.


It all started with a small chest. Every story contains the chest with its heart-shaped lock, even though the stories take place in different eras and on different continents. Enjoy a taste of the Paper Lantern Writers’ writing. Read how we came together on this project, and how these short stories tie to our novels.


My story in this anthology occurs after the death of Nina Larowe. Nina is a child in The River Remembers, and Innocents At Home (work in progress) is her story. “Legacy,” the short story in this anthology, features the chest being inherited by Nina’s niece. Inside are…well, you’ll have to read the story to find out.
