“Magique Comes Home”

I’m about to disappoint anyone who came to this blog looking for my fiction. I’m removing “Magique Comes Home” because I am revising and expanded the story. But if you’re here, pull up a chair and I’ll tell you how I came up with the idea for this award-winning short fiction!

This story was inspired by a conversation with my oldest child. When I told him about someone I knew who had found their lost cat weeks after the Camp Fire in Paradise, he gave me a wide-eyed stare and solemnly said: “That sounds like magic to me!” And I knew there had to be a story about that . . .

I don’t really understand how cats know to survive a wildfire, but I’ve heard many stories of lost kitties finally being found and claimed, sometimes months after the fire. It seems like magic to me, too!
