Winter Tales for web

As I started taking submissions for WINTER TALES, I kept thinking about how I wanted to share a bit of my own story with you. I asked myself, "Can I write my own Winter Tale, like Mark has done in the past?" Eventually, I decided that I wouldn't be the right person in my family to do this. As my sisters have pointed out to me my whole life, "Cristina, you have a terrible memory." Which, I must admit, is true.

Instead I asked my sister Nicole. She's the eldest of four girls, has always been the writer in the family, and has the second best memory among the siblings (my sister Eva remembers EVERYTHING, much to my dismay).

Here's an excerpt from the story my sister, Nicole Alicea Dash, wrote for me to read in Winter Tales, titled A Puerto Rican Holiday:

"I scan the room and count the crucifixes hanging on the walls. There are five that I can see. I also notice the really bad art depicting the last supper. I search for some sign of the holidays, but there isn't a Christmas tree - not even one of those small fake ones on a table. I think this person is some sort of medicine woman. But, she has me lying on her kitchen table and doesn't seem like much more than a really ancient lady. Maybe she's a Bruja? I think that is the word. A witch of some kind..."

I hope you'll be there so I can share it with you.

See you in 3 weeks
