New Work Up at "This Zine Will Change Your Life"

I loved Harriet the Spy as a child. In fact, I still read it every couple of years, along with The Long Secret. My Harriet story, "Excerpts from the New Adventures of Harriet the Spy," is up at This Zine Will Change Your Life. I hope you don't think I did Harriet M. Welsh a disservice; above all, I always loved her combination of stubbornness, indignation, but naivete about the world.
