A new essay, "Voss, Bree, Fend, Light," about shame, debris, & violent feelings toward Betsy DeVos, is up at The Elephants.

 

A new story, "Doors," made of sentences found on Nextdoor.com, is up at The Collagist.

 

My story "Tunnels" appears in the anthology City of Weird: 30 Otherworldly Portland Tales, edited by Gigi Little (Forest Avenue Press, 2016).

 

I'm thrilled that my new novel, Red Clocks, will be published by Lee Boudreaux Books/Little, Brown in the US and by The Borough Press/HarperCollins in the UK. 

 

Grateful to the Money for Women / Barbara Deming Memorial Fund for awarding me a grant. The Fund makes awards twice a year to individual feminist women in the arts whose projects focus upon women. Their generosity will support my work on Red Clocks, a novel in progress. Barbara Deming (1917-1984) was a feminist, lesbian, poet, writer and nonviolent activist in the civil rights, anti-war and women’s movements. She founded the Money for Women Fund in 1975 to give financial and moral support to creative women.
