Short Story in Queen Mob’s Tea House


A relatively new online literary journal on the scene, Queen Mob’s Tea House is fun, creative and progressive. I feel hipper (is that a word?) just being associated with them. The story they published, Aching Afterthoughts, has been through several incarnations to get to where it is. I think it is my most feminist piece of short fiction yet. It doesn’t hide behind metaphor. It’s a bit more in your face than I am accustomed to. In this way, I feel a bit more vulnerable putting it out there. I’m grateful to Queen Mob’s for supporting this work.

Winter 2013 Portland Review

I am thrilled to be a part of the Winter 2013 issue of Portland Review. I always admired Portland Review’s willingness to be experimental and tinker with the surreal. Welcoming me into their literary fold feels like a warm hug after a cold winter trek. It’s a great issue and you can get yourself a copy here. Read my story, Isabel & Stanley.

“Portland Review: Winter 2013 pairs realism with magical realism, suburban with urban life, and characters whose lives are full with those who are running on empty. This anthology follows Portland Review’s 57 year tradition of publishing exceptional prose, poetry, and art while establishing a commitment to sharing local authors’ voices with the world. In this spirit, Winter 2013 features Portland favorites Kevin Sampsell and Lidia Yuknavitch, as well as up-and-coming local and well-known authors from across the United States and Canada.”
