My short story, “Tonight We Are Kings,” just came out in the spring issue of Virginia Quarterly Review! It’s a wonderful publication with a great reputation and it’s an honor to be a part of it. You can read the story here…the print version should be out in a couple of weeks.

Also, signups are happening for my next Saturday morning fiction workshop through the Richard Hugo House, taking place once again at Ballard Homestead. It starts at the end of the month and runs eight weeks, from 10am-12. Here’s some details on signing up, but most importantly, you should know that each week coffee and goodies from Larsen’s bakery is provided.
