Lawrence Foundation prize announced

Michigan Quarterly Review has announced its Lawrence Foundation prize for best short story published in the journal this year.  They chose “We Can Practice Starts,” my take on Flannery O’Connor’s “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” whose title I’ve always found misleading.  So I thought I would try my hand at a serial-killer story that fit my more romantic expectations for her title!

Two new stories available online

Haven’t updated this page in a while–two new stories are now available online!

Michigan Quarterly Review‘s spring issue includes my story, “We Can Practice Starts,” available online here.  This one’s about serial killers, impotent men, exes and annulments, and American expats in England. 

Lilith Magazine has posted “Recounting,” my story from the Summer ’14 issue, here.  A list of men you will kiss in your life.
