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.


A Different Bed EveryTime

My review of Jac Jemc's A Different Bed EveryTime appears in the latest issue of American Book Review.  It is a terrific book and I'm so glad to have written a review for this issue.

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.
