Lisa Halko read my story “Sailing Lessons” last night at Stories on Stage–Davis, and she killed it. Lisa was kind enough to meet with me before the reading to talk about the narrator of the story, a sixty-something woman whose husband has just retired and decides they should sail around the world. Lisa did a great job giving voice to the character.
I just heard from Naomi Williams, Co-Director of Stories on Stage-Davis, that they’ve accepted my story “Sailing Lessons” for next season. Stories on Stage-Davis holds readings once each month featuring short works by two authors read by actors. The story will be performed in SOSD’s Sixth season (2018-19).
I just heard from Stephanie Manuzak, Managing Editor of StoryQuarterly, that they’ve accepted my story “the Rides of March for publication. This is a great publication, established back in 1975, and I couldn’t be happier. The story is taken from a draft of a novel by the same name. I actually shopped the novel around to agents and drew zero interest. I mean zip.
