Fall 2021 Issue

Editor’s Note:

Did you know autumn is the perfect time for romance?

Against a backdrop of fallen leaves and glorious colors, this issue of Spark brings you stories full of unexpected and sweet moments. We have stories set in autumns gone by, stories set in autumns of today, and even a story set in a magical, fantasy autumn!

Featured author Angela Ruth Strong’s comedic story will leave you feeling warm and cozy, while Abbey Downey’s staff feature brings you romance amidst the magic of the first Macy’s Thanksgiving parade. 

So grab a mug of cider or a pumpkin spice latte, curl up with your favorite blanket, and get ready to fall in love.
