I’m a Texas girl.
Growing up in Garland (a suburb of Dallas) gave me a lot of fodder for “place” in my fiction. The sheer vastness of the suburb and my own shyness as a young girl made Garland both a wilderness and a city of isolation.
I write about girls. And sometimes, boys.
The Louisville Review has published my short story, “Let No One Fear Me,” in Issue #88, Fall 2020, and nominated it for a 2020 Pushcart Prize. Thank you, Louisville Review!
