My short fiction “Girl in Dryer” appears in Broken Pencil 54. The story revolves around Alice, a twelve-year-old who lives with unrelieved suspense. She gains temporary relief when she befriends a man and his pig.
This story, inspired by a dream, has four firsts:
|Wilbur and Alice|
First story to be accompanied by illustrations. Beautiful work by Lisa Vanin.
First story I workshopped with F&G Writers, my amazing writing group that will celebrate its two-year anniversary this May.
First time I was invited to participate in the editorial process, a back-and-forth dialogue with BP founder and fiction editor Hal Niedzviecki.
First time I have been paid for any piece of writing. Have to think of something special to do with it.
