Best Small Fictions 2015 finalist

Very happy to report that my short short, "Big Sky," was a finalist for Queen's Ferry Press's forthcoming anthology The Best Small Fictions 2015, edited by Tara Masih and Robert Olen Butler.  I was honored when Tara Masih asked me to be a reader for the anthology.  I only read a few submissions, and I can tell you, it's going to be a terrific book.  I'm proud to be associated in any way, really, with the project and the work Queen's Ferry Press is doing to promote the form.

Joni Mitchell

It has been years since I've had anything remotely approaching a blog.  But I am compelled to say something about Joni Mitchell outside of my facebook posts, and I still haven't figured out tweeting.

I hope Hollywood never makes some cheesy biopic about her, or even a semi-cheesy biopic with decent acting and thoughtful pacing, with Little Green swelling in the background of the adoption scene.  And from what I see, she doesn't give a damn what anyone thinks but the crazy jokes are depressing me today.  I hope she makes it out of the hospital. 

The fangirl in me is imagining a beautiful Valkyrie with cheekbones that can slice mountains, rising up.  Because I don;t want her to die.
