Interviews! Stories!


I am the featured fiction writer over @ Atticus Review and there’s an interview and two new stories of mine called DANDELION LIGHT and MY LOLITA EXPERIMENT.
I was also interviewed over @ Superstition Review.
-Thank you so much to the editors and readers of these magazines for being so kind to me! Niki, Beth, Georgia! THANK YOU!
And thank you to Naomi for always including me over @ The Writes of Woman/In the Media Round Up!
I also wrote about girlfriendships over @ Real Pants: WHO WILL RUN THE FROG HOSPITAL? & GIRLFRIENDSHIPS.
-Also I have been listening to a lot of Chase Rice b/c I love bro-country. And this pic of him in a Riggins’ Rigs t-shirt appeals to me on all levels of levels. I bought $5 tickets to see him soon. I’ve also been listening to a lot of Dierks Bentley. This is how I do life.

This was me in the Tennessee hotel light after eye makeup/before reapplying lipgloss.


I read in Nashville @ Howlin Books and there was no power b/c of storms so we read in the dark and it was so cozy and lovely and I loved it a lot. Also Jessica, the owner is awesome and beautiful and told me that the KINGS OF LEON and BLACK KEYS wives came in and bought copies of my book. AND YOU SHOULD KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE THAT AND THEM and I was overwhelmed by it all. FAVORITE FOREVER. ROCK STAR WIVES having my book on their shelves. SO MUCH LOVE. xx

On & On

I have been listening to Four by One Direction so much and just watching so much One Direction stuff in general and I have this baby picture of Harry Styles on my phone and it will never leave my phone. I wrote a whole thing abt One Direction for Real Pants that’s going up next week and I went over my word limit which says so much already. I LOVE BOY BANDS OKAY.
