Katharine Tulman’s life takes quite a turn in Sharon Cameron’s novel The Dark Unwinding. She moves from her boring (and somewhat tortuous) life with her Aunt Alice to her uncle’s mysterious and exciting estate, Stranwyne Keep. The once-grand mansion is now a crumbling maze of abandoned rooms, underground tunnels, and secret passageways.
Inspired by the excitement of Katharine’s new life, we challenged you to write a story that takes place in an idyllic English village, a crumbling mansion, or a secret passageway.You wrote and voted, and we sent the ten finalists to Sharon Cameron for judging. We’re now pleased to announce the winners of the contest. Check out the winning stories below, and congratulate your fellow Figs!
