Living Springs Publishers, a Centennial, Colorado based publishing company recently announced Gerry Hawley as a finalist in their short story contest entitled, Stories Through the Ages: Baby Boomers Plus 2018.
Her science fiction story, 'Whistle in the Fog,' has been included in the Stories Through The Ages anthology along with 14 other winners. Set in post-war London, Gerry's story follows a constable whose first spell of night duty takes a turn for the sinister. He saves the day, albeit accidentally, and then faces the prospect of explaining to his superiors something that could not possibly have happened. Or did it?
Gerry has been writing poems, short stories and pantomimes for years, and was one of the founding editors of her parish magazine. She lives on The Green with Calypso, her small, eccentric Springer Spaniel.
