I live in Northern California and have published most recently in Kweli Journal, The Puritan, Summerset Review, and Grey Sparrow Journal. My fiction has been nominated three times for a Pushcart and once for a PEN/OHenry prize.

I like connecting things and exploring why and how people forget.

Junior Mints are all she got from Dad. Thanks for giving "One Bag of Popcorn" a read, and for your comments, Marko! Congratulations on completing your story collection.

Marko, thanks for reading and commenting on 'Bukowski'. Gotta believe he'd be bemused at facebook too :) Glad you enjoyed.

That is SOME MEMORY you have, Marko. Good hearing from you!

Hi marko! You have so much to learn about your neighbours to the north :) thanks for the read!

I appreciate your comment on "Ethical Seduction," Marko. Yes, fun AND painful sometimes when those there to help us let their hair down.

Wonderful comment on "Repair Man" Marko. Thank you so much!

oh well, the New Yorker's fiction is a mixed bag–some good, some...yawn..and..?!! And Lahiri...she's okay but I'd never go running to the bookstore to buy her maybe you're in the better boat...!

Kathy Fish – Nov 13, 2010

Thanks, Marco. I appreciate the close read and great comments for "Moro". "Battleship" is an amazing story.
