I asked that question ten years ago when I wrote the short story, American Bondage, and released it in eBook format.
Four years ago, I rereleased the story and added the following forward. . .
I originally released American Bondage under the pen name, Sallie Holt. Sallie Holt was the name of my paternal grandfather’s mother. After several miscarriages and four live births, Great-Grandma Sallie died in 1912. She was just 25 years old.
I later added my pen name Anna J. McIntyre as a co-author to American Bondage. With the current political climate of our country and recent talks of a new Supreme Court reversing Roe VS Wade I decided to release the short story under my own name.
Now, four years later, my story seems timelier than ever. If you are interested, you can download the eBook at Amazon for just 99 cents. Click here to find it.
Or, if you just want to read the book’s description, here it is!
