A Girl, a Gun, and a Monster



The newest issue of Underneath the Juniper Tree is out! In it you’ll find all sorts of creepy stories and poems designed to give children (and adults) all sorts of new nightmares.

One of them is my short story Taiga, about a brave girl named Gerty who goes off into Alaska’s boreal forest to hunt down the grizzly that killed her horse… but comes across a creature much more terrifying instead.

You can read Taiga here:Β http://issuu.com/underneaththejunipertree/docs/spring_2013/68

And here’s a cool video of artist Ken Lamug (aka Rabble Boy) drawing one of the illustrations from Taiga, showing Gerty with her gun as she heads off into the woods.
