my short story, "26 bones," appears in the current (fall 2011) issue of glimmer train stories. this story comes a long way. at the time i was working on it--mostly not writing it--i trudged through an incredibly hard time. i am so grateful to be on this side of things. i still feel tremendously joyful when i remember that linda swanson-davies and susan burmeister-brown said "yes!" when i least expected, and most needed to receive it.
