Milk Sugar Literary JournalOne of my short  stories, Stari most, had been accepted in the online literary journal, Milk Sugar, and is now available online in the October/November 2013 issue. I always enjoy reading Milk Sugar, so I’m pleased to have my story included here.

My story title is the Bosnian word for Old Bridge, the name for the sixteenth century Ottoman bridge that was built to span the Neretva River in the town of Mostar, Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The bridge was destroyed during the war in Bosnia, and rebuilt with the original stones in 2004.

Mostar, Bosnia-HerzegovinaMy story follows Victoria, a talented, young woman at the pinnacle of career success, who travels to Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Although Victoria is confident in her work, her inability to commit herself emotionally causes her to flee romantic entanglements. During her travels, Victoria comes to realizations about past mistakes, and the role she’s played in distancing herself from life.

If you’re interested in Stari most, I hope you’ll read my story here.
