yes!

my short story, "26 Bones," has won the 1st place prize in the glimmer train short story award for new writers. the competition is open to writers whose fiction has not appeared in a print publication with a circulation over 5,000. i receive $1,200 and publication in the fall 2011 issue of glimmer train stories. i've written seven short stories since i began writing about five years ago; "26 bones" marks my fifth short story acceptance (publication). i'm so grateful to have the opportunity to share my work in this way.

here i am, featured on the writer's digest website; there is more forthcoming...
