I was recently notified that my short story collection, Consuming the Body, is a top twenty finalist for the 2017 Snake Nation Press Serena Kennedy McDonald Award. A similar compilation of stories made the finalist list in 2016, so I am both encouraged and excited at the possibilities of this collection finally finding its true home.
I'm a writer, professor, native Texan, NNY transplant, Parrothead and Peacemaker, traveler, Binder, and always on the quest for great chocolate, beer, and laughs. I started this as a way to group upcoming calendars, submission deadlines, and contests in a way that worked for me. Then it spread to other things that were more fun than the calendar. Kind of like buying books. Some things cannot be contained.
