fish out of water,
I earned my MA in Creative Writing from Lancaster University, UK. I've written two novels, and the last one wasn't half bad. I hope some wise, brave soul will publish it soon. My work appears in or is forthcoming from Atticus Review, Eclectic Flash, Ink Sweat and Tears, Melusine, Metazen, The Mom Egg, The Other Room, PANK, Short Fast and Deadly, and SmokeLong Quarterly. My essay "X-rays Are My Souvenirs" won Hippocampus Magazine’s 2011 Contest for Creative Non-Fiction (http://bit.ly/rXgwmN). I do my best to explain myself here: www.susanrukeyser.com
Now and then I tweet: www.twitter.com/SusanRukeyser
I write to escape, to belong, and because I can't stop. Believe it, I've tried.
As of right this minute:
Margaret Atwood, Joyce Carol Oates, Gillian Flynn, Hilary Mantel, Steven Millhauser, Nicole Krauss, Lidia Yuknavitch, Monica Drake, Sara Gruen, Joshilyn Jackson, Donna Tartt, Colum McCann, and once in a while Dean Koontz.
Thanks so much for the fave and comment on "Eretorua". Slowly reading through your stories here; haven't found one I didn't like yet.
Susan, My least favorite also. Thanks for reading. I'm loving your work here. . .Mar
Hi Susan! Thank you for your very kind comment on Deer Collage.
Thanks for the read and fave on Lettie, Susan. We should probably all let the Letties of the world into our dreams ever once in a while.
Welcome, Susan. Can't wait to see some of your writing here!
