I have been submitting my stories to Smokelong Quarterly for a decade now, and I'm excited to say I finally have a story in issue 71, guest edited by the wonderful Steve Edwards! My story is called "Head On" and it is a story idea I had at the start of the pandemic and finally wrote in the summer. I'm happy it now has a home in a literary journal I've admired since I first started taking my writing seriously and sending stories out. I can't thank editors Steve Edwards, Christopher Allen, and the staff at SLQ enough. You can read my story HERE. John Milas interviewed me about the story and you can listen to a playlist inspired by the entire issue on Spotify. Thank you, as always, for reading!

I'm really thrilled to have a new story in the 2021 issue of Moon City Review, out next month. My story is called "The Fantasy of Things" and it is a story idea I've had since attending Squaw Valley in the summer of 2014. I finally wrote the story in 2020 and am happy it now has a home. I can't thank editors Michael Czyzniejewski and Joel Coltharp for including me in the issue! Order your copy here. Thanks, as always, for reading!

I'm honored to be on two panels at the all-online Dallas Literary Festival 2021 sponsored by SMU. The theme this year is TURBULENCE, reflecting the powerful and unpredictable currents in social movements, politics, and public health that have shaped the world in recent years.
