J. Robert Lennon interviewed me for Okey-Panky

A couple weeks ago Okey-Panky published my story “The Winner.” After, editor-in-chief J. Robert Lennon had a few questions for me. You can read the interview here!

Stolen Stationery: a new story in The Rumpus

WISH-YOU-WERE-HERE

I had a dream about you again.

You were writing WISH YOU WERE HERE with giant letters on the roofs of buildings and I was flying over them thinking about you. Then they became alphabet blocks in the window of a store as I walked by. They spelled “Come Home.”

Read the rest of the story in The Rumpus Readers Report: Summer Fever, edited by Susan Clements (and accompanied by the lovely illustrations of Christina Weidman.)

This is my third story in The Rumpus! And my second letter story published this summer! (A third one is coming up soon.)

Previous The Rumpus stories:

Future Past Postcard

The Midnight Sun

Story in The Letters Page:

Layover Jetlag Lei Plane Ghost Love

 

New story: Layover Jetlag Lei Plane Ghost Love

I have a story in the new issue of The Letters Page.

A story I hand-wrote and sent in a letter that was then deciphered and typed by someone at The Letters Page offices (most likely a handwriting expert.)

Download the issue to print out and read (PDF) And then put in an envelope and send to a friend. Everyone loves getting mail!

News! Links! Etc.!

So many good Matchbook Stories things happened lately! With Issue 2 out we started work on what promises to be an amazing Issue 3; also on some other great Book Ex Machina projects. To top that, one of my stories got nominated for The Best Small Fictions of 2015. What a great way to start the new year!

For more Book Ex Machina news check the tumblr  and the blog; to find out about upcoming events, the events page and the Facebook.

And now because that was a lot of information, here’s a picture of a Totoro I made using this pattern.

The Midnight Sun

There’s nothing to do here, so I get in my car and drive. I improvise, even though there’s nowhere to go, and I end up at the Midnight Sun getting a burger

 

My story was published in The Rumpus. YAY!

Read it here.
