Cold Mountain Review — Stench

My short story Stench has been published by Cold Mountain Review — the literary journal of Appalachian State University.  I couldn’t be more pleased with the home this story found.

I set out to make the story as viscerally disgusting as I could.  I’m told I succeeded.  But there was a point to the disgust and I’m hoping that comes through.

You can read (or listen to it) here.  

Let me know what you think!  I love comments.

 

Something Blue

snowwhitebrideI’m very pleased that my short story, “Something Blue”, has been published in the March edition of The Write Launch.

This story takes a few of the elements from my wedding story and weaves an entirely new narrative that questions the role of women, the role of pregnant women and the role of marriage in the lives of women.  It is not autobiographical other than the snow, the drunk photographer and the planned shotgun wedding.
