LOVE, LOSS, LAUGHTER & LUST: A Wayward Ink Publishing Anthology
A BEADED pendant hung in the center of her forehead, in the shape of an eye—a black eye that drew me closer, as if it had its very own gravitational force. Her hair shone, silky-gold, in the glow of the candles behind her. I swallowed down a sudden flutter of nervousness and grinned at her.
She didn’t grin back, only took my hands in her cool ones.
A dull gaze met mine. Blinking once, twice, three times, she bowed her head and peered into the crystal ball.
“Your heart will die searching for your lover in the green glow of spring.”

A born and raised New Zealander, Anyta Sunday has been exploring the literary world since she start reading Roald Dahl as a kid.
Inspired, stories have been piling up in her head ever since. Fast forward to her mid-twenties and jump a few countries (Germany, America, and back again), and she started putting pen to paper.
When she’s not writing or chasing her kid around, she’s reading, hiking, watching Joss Whedon series, attempting pilates, or curling up with her two cats.
Updates on her projects can be found on her website.
