Day 1- Story # 1
Alice Through the Wormhole by Charlotte Bennardo
Alice Through the Wormhole by Charlotte Bennardo is the first story in the Beware the Little White Rabbit anthology. I have to admit that I squee'd a little when I saw Char's name listed with the authors for this. I absolutely loved her Sirenz books (penned with Natalie Zaman) and was excited to see how her solo work would compare.
From the very first line, I was absolutely hooked-the Sci-Fi element was genius and I loved it. The story was full of action, tension and humor--it was fantastic from beginning to end. I loved the detail and creativity Bennardo wove into every scene and I was so sad when the story was over. I look forward to reading even more from this fabulous author in the future!
I spend a lot of my time putting my characters into horrendous circumstances and watch them squiggle to get out. I write for kids, middle graders, young adults and grownups. I am the co-author of the Sirenz series (Sirenz, Sirenz Back In Fashion), and Blonde Ops. Other books, written by me solely, are in that torturous publishing queue. Stay tuned!
