I'm honored to have an essay in Barren Magazine, Issue No. 4, which released today. Truly grateful to Jason Ramsey for choosing “Home” as an Editor’s Pick and to Barren for their kind inclusion of my work alongside the many talented writers, poets, and photographers. Many thanks, Jason & Barren!
“The Scent of Maple” is now available to read online in the Spring/Summer 2015 issue of Southwestern Oklahoma State University’s literary journal, Westview.
“The Scent of Maple” is a story about the unlikely friendship of a woman named Annie and a curious five-year-old named Ben. You can read it on page 15 of the journal here.
Hope you enjoy the story.
In my little office I have a few bookshelves reserved for books that are ‘keepers,’ the ones I’ve read and keep, knowing I’ll read them again and again.
