Throwback Thursday: MFA Thesis Reading

For‘s first-ever #ThrowbackThursday, I present my final reading as an MFA student at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas: an excerpt from my novel (my then-thesis). <3 <3 <3


Gesture Literary Journal published my short story, “When the Animals Turned on You,” today in their “Monsters” issue, available online here.  I wrote it last semester for a class on American Gothic, and I plan to incorporate it into the beginning of my novel.

Yesterday, Gesture invited me to read at their “Monsters” launch party in Fort Collins, Colorado…digitally!  It was a strangely lovely experience, reading from my apartment via Skype while sippin’ PBR.
