My review of Zazen by Vanessa Veselka (Red Lemonade) is now up at TNB. Great book, great new press. Funny, touching, sad, frightening, this book puts you through the emotional wringer. Well worth the ride.
Finally revealed, the cover and back of the Warmed and Bound (Velvet Press) anthology. Looks SO good. I’m honored to be in here. Great job, Pela.

My review of Jessica Anya Blau’s hilarious, touching and heartbreaking novel, Drinking Closer to Home, is now live at The Nervous Breakdown. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this book. It starts off with a ton of characters, and I kept thinking, oh man, this is going to be too soft, to […]

Exciting news. I just confirmed today that I’ll be one of a handful of authors that will be attending a residency at Writers in the Heartland this October. They only take ten authors a year. I’ll have a week in a house out in the middle of Illinois, three square meals a day and nothing […]

Neither is death. Caught between them is crime-scene tech in-training Marta Villarreal, trying to work a case that may very well […]
