Recent Publications: "Paperback Christmas" and "The Health of the Heart"

Hi folks - 
I wanted to let you know about a few recent publications of mine!

The first is an essay, "Paperback Christmas," which appears in the latest Chicken Soup for the Soul book, The Wonder of Christmas. My essay is about books and family, two of my very favorite things, and so I hope you'll pick up a copy and take a look!

The second is a short story, "The Health of the Heart," which appears in this month's issue of Spark. I had a lot of fun with this one. It's a flash fiction romance piece about a doctor and a hospital volunteer--and one rather lovely therapy dog. 

(And me being me, there is also some nerdiness in there--I was in the middle of reading The Body Keeps Score when I wrote it, and so the plot revolves around some interesting medical and psychological theories about trauma and healing.)

Anyway, Spark is a great magazine chock-a-block with short, intense, uplifting fiction, so pick up a copy and let me know what you think!

Peace of Christ to you,
Jessica Snell
