In my work, memory reigns. I have used my own memories to craft short stories that have appeared in literary magazines and websites such as The Yale Review, The Literary Review, The Rumpus, Confrontation, Greensboro Review, North Dakota Quarterly, and more.
And now, I have completed a childhood memoir titled “One Perfect Thing.” The book has a wonderful cast of characters that includes the ex-Vaudevillian couple who came to my bedroom whenever I was sick to cheer me up with their performances, the faith healer Kathryn Kuhlman, and many others who showed me that love does indeed conquer all.
One of my memoir excerpts, “The One Who Got Away,” appears in Midwestern Gothic’s Fall 2015 issue, which is available in print, via eBook, and on Kindle. The issue contains beautiful, moving work from a wide variety of great Midwestern voices.
