The Massachusetts Review nominated my story “The Once and Future Capital” for a Pushcart Prize! I’m so excited; this is my first nomination. It’s in the Summer 2014 issue if you’d still like to support a great journal and read it! And in case you’re interested, here’s my little piece about how the town harlot got her name.
I am thrilled to report that Tim Duggan Books (Tim Duggan’s eponymous new imprint at Crown) will publish my third novel, The Book of Esther, likely sometime in the spring of 2016! Tim is a remarkable editor; I feel so fortunate to be able to work with him on this project. More news as it becomes available.
Thank you to my family, and to the many friends, colleagues, and readers who have supported and encouraged me as this book has followed its path to completion. I am beyond grateful, and can’t wait to show you what I’ve been up to.
