I’m Smack, a speculative fiction writer and co-host of the Infinite TBR podcast. I’m also a Clarion 2012 grad and received an MFA in popular fiction from USM Stonecoast, and in 2017 my short story “The Carrying Beam” was awarded first place for the Katherine Patterson Prize for Young Adult Writing. It’s about a girl who discovers her mother is a witch; the story is available for reading in the VCFA Journal for the Arts, Hunger Mountain.

I have other stories available in various anthologies, but another that isn’t behind a paywall appeared in Fireside Fiction issue #35 and is called “Ariadne, Abandoned on Naxos.” That one is about the young woman in Greek mythology who helped Theseus escape the Minotaur’s labyrinth.

While those two stories appear under the name S.M. Mack, I also publish lighthearted contemporary fantasy under the name Sorcha Mack. You can find my first story, called “A Dragon Walks Into A Bookstore,” on Amazon, B&N, Kobo, and other major ebook retailers.
