"The Bunker," my contribution to Kerlak Publishing's steampunk anthology,
Dreams of Steam, has an interesting story behind its creation.

The inimitable Allan Gilbreath, of Kerlak Publishing, had been asking me to
do something for one of their anthologies for some time, and I kept promising,
but never saw anything that grabbed me personally. But at a booksigning
in Corinth, MS, Allan informed me that Kerlak was doing a steampunk
anthology. I have to admit to being a not-so-closet fan of
Agatha Heterodyne, Girl Genius, not to mention H.G. Wells, Jules Verne,
etc. So this announcement of Allan's piqued my interest.

We talked off and on through the booksigning. Then on the drive home to
Huntsville AL, my husband Darrell and I brainstormed ideas.

And the "plot bunny" bit. Hard.

Using my cell to get info off the internet while we brainstormed, I had the
entire story put together in the 2-hour drive home! Another 2 hours (I was up
until after 3am), and the story was not only in the computer, but winging
its electronic way to Allan. He read it, loved it, and forwarded it to the
anthology's editor, the delightfully fun Kimberly Richardson. Kim loved it
too, and here it is.
