New Story in Front Porch Journal + Reviews of X Marks The Dress

In the latest issue of Front Porch Journal, Kelly Magee and I have a collaborative short story titled With Snakes. It begins and ends as a love story, but the middle is serpentine, and sounds like S.

I'm grateful for two smart, thoughtful reviews of X Marks The Dress: A Registrymy poetry collaboration co-written with Kristina Marie Darling. The first review, up at The Collagist by Laura Madeline Wiseman, focuses on the letter X and all it stands for in our collection. The second review, up at Front Porch Journal by Laura Drell, emphasizes our critique of ceremony and tradition. Thanks to both reviewers for reading so carefully and setting our work in a larger cultural context.

New Story in Hayden's Ferry Review!

Kelly Magee and I have a new collaborative short story, "With Animal," in Hayden's Ferry Review issue #53, Fall/Winter 2013. It's the title story to our forthcoming short story collection, and it's one of my favorites. Enjoy!
