New Stories & Interview At The Short Story

TSSLovely Marie Gethins interviewed me about all things flash and my recent co-authored flash collection with Robert Vaughan, RIFT, for The Short Story. Marie asked great questions!

I have a couple of new stories published in stellar places! First, “Imagine Your Daughter Is a Cherry Red Convertible,” a micro under 100 words, at New World Writing. Many thanks to editors Kim Chinquee and Frederick Barthelme.

And “I Have Not Pushed Back My Cuticles with An Orange Stick Since the Nixon Administration,” at the wonderful, long-standing journal, Monkeybicycle. Monkeybicycle published one of my first stories, “The Next Stanley Kubrick,” back in 2007 or so. I’m honored to be back. Thanks so much to editor James Tate Hill.

More Great Reviews for RIFT at JMWW and Goodreads!

RIFT FINALHey, the snow has finally melted here in Colorado and there’s some good news to share! Co-author Robert Vaughan and I were thrilled by this lovely review of RIFT by Amelia White at the JMWW blog:

“There were moments of peace and violence, of connection and loneliness, of levity and weight. Ultimately, the beauty of Rift lies both its scope and its detail. Even on the second read through, every story held its own surprises, some small, some large, all profoundly human.”

You can read the whole review HERE.

Also, some great new reviews on Goodreads by amazing writers Nancy Stohlman, Mark Kerstetter, Jen Knox, and Christopher DeWan. (Reminder: you can purchase a signed–by me–copy of Rift right here on THIS PAGE of my website.)

Also, my NEW Flash Creative Non-Fiction workshop with Word Tango is now open for registration. It will run online from May 20-22nd. These are a lot of fun and fill up quickly! More info HERE.

And stay tuned for more information about the upcoming Writing Workshop in Taos that Robert and I are teaching in August. That is also filling quickly! It’s going to be a very busy summer…
