L’Erin Ogle’s story “Nobody’s Daughter and the Tree of Life” was published in Metaphorosis on Friday, 8 June 2018.
The idea for “Nobody’s Daughters and the Tree of Life” was about the lengths people go to for children. What if you could just pluck a baby from a tree, but paid a heavy price? When I wrote it, I only had the tree in mind, and a curse, but it became about Alvie, his devotion to his absent mother, and finding love. I loved the idea of how Mattie and Ted found each other and ended up with Alvie and Hannah.
