Toasted Cake 79: The Moon's Wife by Cheryl A. Warner
Toasted Cake 79! In which we call her, simply, the Moon in the Hill.
Do not seek her at night, hum the grasses poking through cracks in the concrete underneath. That is when she is meant to be brilliant. That is when she rages against her chains.
Cheryl A. Warner lives and writes in Silicon Valley with her husband and two super-dogs, Lois and Clark. She has been published in Swamp Biscuits and Tea and Luna Station Quarterly among others and is also a slush reader for Clarkesworld Magazine. She blogs about her writing and reading habits at cherylawarner.com.
