MAY-SEPTEMBER is now available!

The 2010 Press 53 Open Awards anthology, which features my award-winning novella MAY-SEPTEMBER, is now available, and I hope you will consider picking up a copy. Judge Amy Rogers said that

"May-September is confident, resonant, achingly heartfelt, gorgeous—and surprising in a much different way. The writing is spare and elegant. This story of unspoken desires is beautifully layered, thick with tension and full of passion."

The anthology is available through Amazon and Press 53. Please contact me if you're interested in a review copy.
