The Memory

I could bear the memory, but I could not bear the music
that made the memory such a killing thing.

Murder at the P. O.

My story, "Murder at the P. O.," has been accepted for publication in the first issue of Blank Fiction Magazine.  It will be out in November.

I wrote a version of the story years ago but never attempted to get it published. I knew it wasn't quite ready. But several months ago I took another look at it and began revising; leaving it for weeks at a time, and going back and revising, revising, revising, before finally deeming it might be publishable.

It was worth it, though, particularly when the editor of Blank added this note: We very much liked the way you braided the narrative together through different character perspectives.
And to a writer, that means the world.

A Woman

A woman is like a tea bag. You never know
how strong she is until she gets into hot water.
