Upcoming Live Readings in March

The nice thing about the pandemic is that I can have two readings in one week half a continent away from each other. The downside is I would love to be in both Toronto and Orlando right now. But either way, I’m excited for both of these events next week.

The first event is on March 17th, at 7pm for the Ephemera Reading series in Toronto. The theme is joy, which I think I can find a story for. I’ll be reading with Curtis Chen and Rebecca Hirsch Garcia. I’m thrilled to be a part of this reading series!

The second event is for the convention ICFA which is usually in Orlando every year, except this year it will be online. I’ll be reading with Richard Butner and Gregory Norman Bossert on March 20th, at 9 pm EST. I’ve always enjoyed reading at ICFA, so I’m looking forward to this event too.

Hope to *see* you there.

New Story: “The Memory of a Memory is a Spirit”

Hello friends and friendly readers! I’m happy to share that I have a new story available in Lightspeed Magazine! It’s called “The Memory of a Memory is a Spirit” which is definitely my most poetic title to date. I’m not going to talk about my process and the journey of this story too much in this post because there’s an author interview where I do just that.

I will say instead that I’m super excited to have a story published in Lightspeed Magazine. It was one of the first magazines I read when I started writing eleven years ago and one of the first places I submitted a story to. It’s been on my list of markets I’d like to be published in for a very long time.

My writing soundtrack for this story was two songs by the band Daughter. The first is a cover of the song Poke by Frightened Rabbit and the other song is called Lifeforms. So dark and broody and I love it.

Hope you enjoy the story!
