Evidently I received a Letter of Merit in SCBWI’s 2009 Work-in-Progress Grant competition.  Thanks to Kathryn Gaglione–the other Virginia winner–for pointing it out to me.

Farrago’s & Odyssey

July 2, 2009 at 1:38 am (Uncategorized)

My story “Hollow Woman” is in this quarter’s issue of Farrago’s Wainscot .  (And, no, before anybody asks, it’s not autobiographical.)

And, my story, “Janissary Games,” is in this month’s Odyssey Magazine.  Sorry, no online content.  It’s purely a print mag.

Janissary Games

Odyssey just accepted this story for their July/August 2009 issue. My story is a rather dark take on the issue’s theme: the biology of play.
