Abe Cedarian has wanted to write fiction for as long as he can remember. Like many beginning writers, he started out by collecting books on the topic. Character, story structure, outlining, dialog, trait thesauri, writing short stories, writing full length novels – you name it, Abe’s got it. After years (or possibly even decades) of pursuing this hobby, it looked like Abe was more interested in collecting books than writing them. Then Abe found Write. Publish. Repeat. and became acquainted with the Self-Publishing Podcast. Abe followed the adventures of Johnny and Sean in Fiction Unboxed, which gave him the push to commit words to page. As calls were issued for the subsequent anthologies, Abe decided to commit words to page and thus was born Abe’s short story, “Scarlettina: A Crumble Fairy Tale”.
