Sing, Goddess!

This anthology features retellings of Greek myths, and my story focuses on the goddess Artemis!
“Light in the Darkness,” a retelling of the myth of ARTEMIS, by Selenia Paz, author of the Leyendas Trilogy
Having retreated to the deepest parts of the woods, Artemis is happy simply living in solitude with her dog, surrounded by nature. She tries not to think of the family of gods she left behind, of her father Zeus, or of the reputation that comes with being the goddess of the hunt. But it seems the Fates have a different plan in mind, and not even the woods will be able to keep her from this path—or help her forget who she truly is.

Perchance to Dream

“Lisbeth,” an adaptation of MACBETH.
When Lisbeth is ten years old, she visits the Día de los Muertos festival with her best friend Bianca. There, the two wander into the Tres Hermanas tent and encounter three fortune-telling sisters who speak in riddles of Lisbeth and Bianca’s future—a future full of promise, but one that will cost them dearly. Unsure of the fortune’s meaning, Lisbeth soon forgets more than just the Sisters’ words. As Lisbeth’s prospects improve, her ambitions blind her to the damage and hurt she is inflicting, and she fails to see the full promise of a fortune beginning to come true.

Short Story Lisbeth
Based on William Shakespeare's The Tragedy of Macbeth
