Final Project

Leon Literary Review published a new piece of flash fiction I wrote called “Final Project.”

Big Bend Literary Magazine published my personal essay “Petrichor” (and to save you a trip to the dictionary, petrichor is the sickly sweet smell you get when it rains after a long dry period). This piece is accompanied by wonderful art by Kerri Menchaca.

Quibble Literary Magazine published a very short personal essay of mine called “Thin Ice.” I was thinking about ice forming on the pond Tjornin in central Reykjavik, Iceland when I wrote this.

For Carolyn

I was thinking a lot about my late friend Carolyn earlier this year and wrote a piece about her that appeared in the Bookends Review.

I miss her and you can read the piece here.
