A 500-word slice of my novel-in-progress— now @IndianaReview!

IRI’m thrilled to see my flash fiction, “Mrs. Williamson Winds the Watch,” in the summer Indiana Review— alongside the work of so many fantastic writers. This publication is a triple happiness: it’s a 500-word slice of my Peshtigo-fire novel, it’s a 2013 “Half-K Prize” finalist, and it’s my 3rd story to appear in Indiana Review. (P.S. I love you, Indiana Review.)

My story “Beached” long-listed for Wigleaf’s Top 50 Very Short Fictions of 2014!

Well, what a nice way to start the day. My flash fiction “Beached,” first published in Necessary Fiction, was long- listed as one of the top 200 Very Short Fictions of 2014, compiled by Wigleaf magazine. The annual Wigleaf Top 50 is a list of the best of the best— it’s where I go to learn how to write this thing called “Flash Fiction”— so I’m thrilled to have my work even considered for this collection. Congratulations to the Top 50 writers– please read this collection, they’re fantastic. And thanks to Steve Himmer and Scott Garson and all the good folks at Wigleaf, who read and edit collections of flash—and ignite our aspirations.

“Beached” is also available in Morbid Curiosities, which you can learn more about here.
