  1. Dear Ms Birch,

    Are you the author of The Orb? I just read the short story in Cricket Magazine. Rather impressed with the tale, I want to share it with my 6th and 7th graders.

    Have you published other pieces? I would like to encourage students to write and am planning on using your piece to get students to expand on their own writing.

    Good luck with your writing career. I hope you are enjoying life.


    • Hi, Eric.

      Yes, I am, indeed, the author of “The Orb.” I’m so pleased that you enjoyed it and glad to hear that your students will have the opportunity to read it.

      I have several other published pieces, which are linked here: https://wordsofbirch.com/publications-2/
      “Dragonfly’s First Flight” was originally published in Cricket as well, and “Down by the Riverside” in Abyss & Apex also features a child protagonist. “Guardian” in the Grantville Gazette’s Universe Annex and “Silverbird Rising” in Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show both have young adult protagonists.

      Thanks for reaching out. It’s always a pleasure to hear people are reading and enjoying my stories.
