Mary Alice Dixon was selected as a finalist in the 2019 Living Springs short story contest. Her feminist story Revolt of the Blessed Virgin Mother has just been published in Living Springs' anthology "Stories Through the Ages Baby Boomers Plus 2019."
The "Revolt" is the tale of a defiant girl who takes on the religious hierarchy as represented by the girl's nemesis, Joey Patrick Purcelli, and by the dictatorial Sister Mary Agnes, casting director of the fifth grade Christmas play.
The editors note "Mary Alice Dixon has crafted an exceptional story both funny and believable" in the adventure of a rebellious girl who discovers life isn't always fair but "does her part to get even."
The anthology is available from the publisher at livingsprings.com and on Amazon.
