Emma of Crooked Creek (Short Story)
EMMA OF CROOKED CREEK is the first short story installment of the Crooked Creek series set in post-Civil War Montana.
Short Story: Approx. 5,700 words
A little background on Crooked Creek . . .
Emma of Crooked Creek was originally written for a short story contest, but while writing it, I realized that I had the makings of a new series that I very much wanted to write. Set in post-Civil War Montana Territory, the characters, time period, and setting came alive, and I'm looking forward to adding to this collection over time.
Most of the stories in this series will be short stories or novelettes, but there will be at least two full-length novels, one of which will be a Christmas novel, and another an exciting battle-and-romance-
You'll have a chance to meet many characters from this unique Montana town, but for now, I hope you enjoy this little glimpse into Crooked Creek.
