Local Author Wins Prize For Great Story

Today I had the pleasure of meeting one of this year’s Writers of the Future winners, John Haas. John’s a talented author and a published novelist. His debut novel, The Reluctant Barbarian, was published by local small press Renaissance Press. His fiction has also appeared in numerous anthologies & magazines.

I’m really looking forward to seeing John’s story in Writers of the Future 35. Congratulations, John!

New story up in Flash Fiction Online

Flash Fiction Online January 2019I’m very excited to have a story appearing in Flash Fiction Online’s January 2019 food-themed issue.

The editor, Suzanne Vincent, on this month’s issue: “This month, we invite you to experience a gamut of emotions—grief, longing, frustration, humor, and one very disturbing peek into codependency–all revolving around our favorite subject—FOOD!” My story, Salt, Spices, Fat, Honey, is the “very disturbing peek.”

Update: Charles Payseur reviewed “Salt, Spices, Fat, Honey” in his review of the issue on his site, Quick Sip Reviews. Thank you for the thoughtful review, Charles!
