With love

I have a couple of blog posts I’ve been working on lately, including one about the difficulties of writing my new novel and a new addition to my Research for Fiction series. I had planned to finish and post at least one of those today.

But instead, I want to devote today to justice and equality in America.


This has little to do with writing or teaching, the usual purviews of my blog. But it has everything to do with humanity, and it’s too important a moment in our nation’s history to leave unremarked here.

We have a long way to go, America. We probably will always have a long way to go. But the march of progress goes on, and today we made a huge stride.

I write fiction and teach college writing and literature. I'm the author of the story collection There Is No Other Way to Worship Them, the novel Hagridden, and the flash fiction chapbooks Box Cutters and Where There Is Ruin.

However irrational their fear actually is.
