Second Story

My second story in the collection Birds, Bees, and Church Trailer Thieves is titled Seagull. It is set in the future, on the Outer Banks of NC, after the total collapse of the ocean ecosystem. While it is entirely fictional, it is true that we are overfishing the ocean to great extremes and our trash piles are acidifying the ocean at a rate that is beyond the ocean's compensating mechanisms.
The story focuses on a young girl who is facing her future and must make a decision.
