First Story Published!

"The secret of our emotions never lies in the bare object but in its subtle relations to our own past: no wonder the secret escapes the unsympathising observer, who might as well put on his spectacles to discern odors."  George Eliot, Adam Bede

Welcome to my blog! Writing is part of who I am, and I will probably write forever, no matter what. You can check out my bio page to read about how long I've wanted to be a published writer. I'll get a photo up on that page soon.

For now, my biggest news is that my short story "In Our Own Backyard" is going to published in the third edition of the Garbanzo Literary Journal this October. ( The link to their website is below.) Since this is my first real publishing credit as an adult, I am ecstatic. I hope that this is the beginning and that there will be more to come.

They only make (by hand) 300 copies of each edition. The rest is sold as an ebook. Typically the magazine is $20 plus shipping. I can buy a few for $12, so if you are interested in buying one at a discount, let me know!
