"Little Hawk" is up at Little Fiction. This story went through many revisions, workshops, and rejections before finding a home. I haven't come up with a cool-enough one-sentence synopsis to hypnotize yet, so I'll just encourage you to check it out when you have a few free minutes. This story is in my first collection, Men and the Drink.
Inspiration included kitchen work in restaurants, sibling relationships, the rural-urban divide, and Moss Park in Toronto.
Much thanks to Troy Palmer, editor and creative director of Little Fiction, for his excellent fine-tuning and beautiful cover design. To learn more about Little Fiction, read this recent interview with Troy at The City Fox. All short fiction at LF can be found HERE.
