Published and Marked “Busy”


If we’re connected on social media, you’ve already seen me post about my most recent essay, “In Texas,” published in The Drum.

What you might not know is that this essay has been years in the making. For that reason, and because this story sits close to my heart, I am more than grateful it’s finally found a home.

If you’re a reader, listen to “In Texas” HERE.

If you’re a writer, submit your own work to The Drum. Their submissions are open again, and I can’t say enough about working with editor, Henriette Lazaridis.

Marked “Busy”

As thrilling as it is to see your own work out in the literary world, it’s just as exciting to share the work of other authors whose stories I love. Lisa Rivero and I have finalized our selection of personal essays, creative nonfiction, and poetry for a family narratives anthology to be published in 2017 by Hidden Timber Books, entitled:

Bringing letters and archives alive
through creative nonfiction, flash narratives, and poetry.

Hidden Timber Books logoOver the next several months, we’ll be working diligently with both seasoned and emerging writers, fine-tuning these stories and the layout, to give you a rich collection of stories uncovered, discovered, and imagined from letters, journals, photos, and more.

Take a look at the list of contributors on Hidden Timber Books‘ website, and mark your calendar for an early 2017 release!
