Much of my writing tends to dance around general questions about place and, more specifically, about home — is it possible to find a home? What would that place actually look like? And as a place-centered writer, I’ve always considered myself to be a southern writer; genus Texas-Georgia hybrid. Because of that, I’m particularly pleasedContinue reading “The Written Word”
The Spring 2011 issue of storySouth, which includes my story “Trafficking,” has just gone live! storySouth showcases great southern writing and elegant, clean web design. Check it out.
Am pleased to announce that the latest issue of Southwest Review, which contains my poem “Hill Country Fossils,” is available. Texas readers: grab the issue next time you’re in a bricks-and-mortar bookstore; if you live elsewhere, single copies are available on the Southwest Review site, here.
The Summer issue of Brain, Child —which includes my story “Sleep” — has hit the stands; you can get a copy at Barnes and Noble, Whole Foods and elsewhere. Brain, Child recently received a well-deserved Utne Independent Press Award — check it out!
I’m very happy to announce that my story “Sleep” — another of the “fairy tales turned inside-out” I’ve been working on for a while now, will appear in the Summer, 2010 issue of what’s got to be the rockingest parenthood-related magazine around, Brain, Child.

The Fall 2009 issue of Brain, Child —which includes my story “Baby Teeth” — is on the stands!

Here in Atlanta, you can find Brain, Child at Barnes and Noble and atContinue reading “The Written Word”
I’ve mentioned Five Chapters, the website that serializes some really wonderful short fiction, before, but this article in the Washington Post gives yet another reason why it’s a worthy addition to your onscreen routine.
It’s not on the stands yet, but another of the motherhood/fairy stories I’ve been working for the past little bit (uh, doesn’t she mean the past five years?) will be in the Fall, 2009 issue of Brain, Child. I love Brain, Child. And not just because they publish fiction along with personal essays and nonfictionContinue reading “The Written Word”
Just received word that my poem “Hill Country Fossils” will appear in an upcoming issue of Southwest Review. And just a couple of weeks ago, I opined thusly about the merits of writing poetry over fiction: How freeing it would be … to write without the words needing to earn their keep…. How freeingContinue reading “The Written Word”
Recently received notification that my story “Little Man,” which appeared in Brain, Child Magazine this time last year, is one of three finalists for the 2008 Texas Institute of Letters Kay Cattarulla Award for Best Short Story. It’s in good company, and I’m quite chuffed that it’s there.
