I learned this week that my short fiction collection, entitled You Can Tell Me Anything, has been accepted for publication by Mint Hill Books, a label of Main Street Rag Publishing. Publication is scheduled for November 2020. Now the fun part begins: editing, proofing, and selecting a cover design.
My story, "You Can Tell Me Anything," appears in the 2019 issue of Flying South Magazine, an annual published by the Winston-Salem Writers Association.
I've just signed a contract with Adelaide Books. They will publish my novel, Burn Down This World, in March 2020. After four years of hard work, I'm so pleased this book has found a home!
As Associate Editor of the Ocean State Review, I'm so proud of the new issue. Fiction by Jacqueline Doyle, poetry by Lisa Russ Spaar, and a great interview with Julija Sukys. You can order a copy here.
My story Other Houses was published in the Winter 2018 issue of Gris Gris Literary Journal. You can read it here.
Registration for the Ocean State Writing Conference is now open! Interested in working with novelist Michael Lowenthal or poet Major Jackson? Check out our schedule of workshops and events here.
I'll be reading from This Invisible Beauty on Thursday, 7/27, at The Elephant Room at 6:30pm. Reading is part of The Lively Literati series sponsored by the Association of Rhode Island Authors. Open mic to follow. (2170 Broad Street, Pawtuxet Village.)
My poem "The Census Taker" from This Invisible Beauty is included in the anthology Forgotten Women: A Tribute in Poetry. The anthology is edited by Ginny Connors and published by Grayson Books.
Exciting news: my new book, This Invisible Beauty, will be published in spring 2017 by Finishing Line Press. This Invisible Beauty, a poetry chapbook, is about the life of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings and her love of the landscape and the people of Cross Creek, Florida.
