SmokeLong Quarterly Guest Reader Interview (September 2016)
Thank you to SmokeLong’s Megan Giddings for this interview, which will run during my week of guest reading, September 5-11, 2016.
Michelle Elvy’s Writers on Writing “Dinner Discourse: Six Writers Share a Meal” for Awkword Paper Cut (August 2013).
I share a virtual meal with writers Kate Brown, Mary Carroll-Hackett, Rupert Fike, Tim Jones, and Michelle Elvy. “I’m embarrassed to say I have a writing sweater, and I’ve darned it, and I’m not that kind of girl.”
Susan Tepper interviews me about my story “You Take All” for Fictionaut’s Monday Chat (November 28, 2011).
“Not too long ago, my aunt walked into my house, wearing my mother’s old wig. She was proud to show me. My mother followed behind, smiling. It was one of those moments I’ll never forget. I felt overwhelmingly connected to that wig right then. It had returned, years later, to stand in my kitchen. I hadn’t expected it. After that, I knew I wanted to write about a wig and its place in a family. The wig had to be central, its own character. And it had to demand attention. I wanted to convey some of this in the story’s opening scene.” – interview excerpt
