Anyone looking at this blog lately will notice that every other post seems to be an apology for not posting so I'm not going to apologize this time in order to avoid redundancy.
In any case, I'm happy to report that along with a full and happy family life, I've been writing! A lot!
And I've also been reading many wonderful short story collections, all of which I'll be naming in a coming post.
I'll also be posting an interview with a writer of two of those much admired collections soon...
- Originally from Vermont, I now live in North Carolina. My work can be found in recent issues of REAL: Regarding Arts and Letters, The Jabberwock Review, The Emerson Review, Storyglossia, The MacGuffin, Confrontation, Passages North, SmokeLong Quarterly, elimae, wigleaf, and Pank, among others, and forthcoming from Gargoyle #57 and REAL: Regarding Arts and Letters. One of my stories has been translated into Farsi by Asadollah Amraee, and many others by Jalil Jafari, two of which have been published in the Iranian journal, Golestaneh Magazine. For two years I worked as an assistant editor for Narrative Magazine. Currently, I serve as a mentor for Dzanc's Creative Writing Sessions. I'm working on two novels and a short story collection. In May, I was awarded the Carol Houck Smith Contributor Scholarship for the 2011 Bread Loaf Writers' Conference.
