NEARER STILL- A Companion Short Story

Nearer Still high res

If you loved Gram in EVER NEAR, check out my new short story titled Nearer Still. It features Winnie Ferguson as a teenager growing up in Baltimore. Here is the story description.

Expanding on the world of Melissa MacVicar’s debut novel EVER NEAR, this digital-only short story explores the background of Jade’s grandmother, Winnie Ferguson, growing up as a black teenager and a budding clairvoyant in the early 1960s.

When Stanley Irving gets arrested during a sit-in at a segregated lunch counter, he makes the front page of the Baltimore newspaper. Eighteen-year-old Winnie Ferguson’s father is furious with his daughter’s boyfriend and tries to break up the young couple. Will Winnie stand up to her father, or will the pair be ripped apart by the tension surrounding the Civil Rights movement?

You can purchase it on Kindle or any computer here.

Nearer Still

Enjoy!
