Libby Heily

Biography

When asked why I write, I usually stutter out a made up answer that I can't remember three seconds later. I can't remember the very first time I decided I wanted to write, it's just something I kind of always did. I wrote really bad poems as a kid, then horrible short stories as a teenager and then passable plays in college. I'm an adult now (and nothing you can say can make me change my mind about that) and hopefully my writing has progressed with my age. When I'm not spending my time with made up people in made up places doing made up things - some would call it lying- I'm generally reading, running, watching sports, drinking good beers and eating too much food with the hubby. I'd love to tell you I'm a mountain climber or an astronomer or something cool like that, but I'm not that cool. In truth, some would say I'm nerdy. But the Dr. Who poster above my computer would beg to differ.

    Really loved it. Not what I expected at all. I loved being in Plant Girl's head and how she viewed her life and the store. I didn't expect the boss to be a good guy!

    This was a great piece of flash fiction. I like the inventiveness of the metal exoskeleton. I like guessing what's next, if there's a twist. Ultimately, it's a glance into a person's life under pressure, and the sci-fi elements are on point.
