Shelf Awareness did a writeup on my wonderful publisher, MIRA, and I received a very cool mention. Thanks so much to my editor, Erika Khan Imranyi, and everyone at MIRA!
Below is my very first interview for my novel “The Returned” via Publisher’s Weekly. To say I’m excited is an understatement. Excuse me while I moonwalk to the kitchen.
Yesterday I found this review for my second poetry collection “…hide behind me…” A good review always feels great!
At approximately 11:02am a garter snake measuring approximately 12″-16″ in length crawls out from my kitchen cabinet. No doubt having found his way in from the small gap around the drain pipe for the sink, he finds himself on the floor of my kitchen looking at me.
I look back at him. We both seem equally surprised and confused.
“Okay,” I say, trying to figure out exactly how to greet my new visitor.
He nods as if to say “Sorry, didn’t know anybody was in here. My bad.”
He begins a clumsy slither—no doubt unaccustomed to the limited traction of the linoleum. I open the door of the house and look for a broom, planning full well to help usher him out calmly and peacefully. But before I can manage that he slips into a small crack beneath the dishwasher.
