Best Small Fictions 2016


So happy that my story “Carnivores,” first published by KYSO Flash (No. 4) in 2015 has been picked up by Queen’s Ferry Press for The Best Small Fictions 2016.  Edited by Stuart Dybek, no less!  Much gratitude to series editor, Tara Masih, and to my editor at KYSO Flash, Clare MacQueen, who nominated the story.  And of course, to Stuart Dybek who chose to include it!

Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts


I’m thrilled to be starting a two-week residency at the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts in Nebraska City.  The building is gorgeous and set up so well to support artists — writers, visual artists and composers.  The staff has been so gracious with us.  The town is historic and tree-lined and just bursting with spring boughs of flowers.

While I’m here, I plan to complete the current draft of the novel.  There is really nothing in the way of me just writing and walking and writing some more, here.
