Another Update to How to Live the Freelance Life

Tree Roots With Scary Face!

I have been adding things to the site here and there. A couple of days ago I shared a link to A Troll Tale: A Story from the World of Carthage written by Sheila Buck and Katie Hamilton from over at the Creative Carthage blog.

Today I would like to point out that I have also added a category of links called My Short Stories to the secondary sidebar of this blog. These are stories that I have written. The links, thus far, lead to sample stories from the upcoming book Tales from the Mountain, a book from the Tales of Darkness Series, as well as from another book from the same series that I am working on called Tales from the Woods. One story, Serenita, does not go with a book. Not at this point anyway.

So far I am sharing the following stories, which are free for you to read at your convenience.


  • “Be Careful of Those Woods”
  • A Trip to the Outhouse
  • Alone
  • Serenita
  • The Woods

Enjoy them, and be on the lookout for more stories by me in my effort to combine my freelance writing career with fiction writing.

About Shannon L. Buck

Hello. My name is Shannon, and I'm a single mother of two young adult daughters, and Memay to one precious Little Man. I work as a writer from my home in Orono, Maine, and as a Front Desk Agent at an inn. Writing is my life, second only to my daughters. I enjoy writing nonfiction, as well as fiction in a number of genres. At some point, I would like to travel. It would be a true writing adventure.
