Under the Ruish Moon

Under the Ruish Moon is my first folklore fiction story. Published by Propertius Press in the anthology Draw Down the Moon, it is set in a remote location on the Shetland Islands and tells the tale of a woman who longs to return to her watery home but cannot leave the love she has found on land. I have to say, this was one fun story to write.
