I’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.)
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.
Sometimes, without meaning to, we let tigers into our living rooms. “The Lady, The Tiger” recounts my experience from a past life–today, in the GORGEOUS new issue of Superstition Review.

In the 1840s, a Bavarian princess claimed to have swallowed a grand glass piano. I wrote about it in a flash fiction piece in issue 55 of The Collagist. The entire issue is amazing– read it now!
What if we could hear the stories of the cases of asylum patients (photographed later by Jon Crispin, here) as they were packed, taken, stored away for years and years— and yearned for? My story, “Cases: Willard Asylum for the Insane: New York, 1910-1960,” tries to listen.
The new edition of Fiction Southeast looks beautiful, and I’m so proud to have my story “Dreamland: Coney Island, 1904” appearing in the issue.
