In bloom: Of April and old cats

Just wanted to post a few updates and events for 2018. First of all, I’m excited to be traveling to Santa Monica May 4 and 5 for YALLWEST. It’s such a fun event and I hope to see you there!

In writing news, the cover for (DON’T) CALL ME CRAZY is up and it is gorgeous! I’m thrilled to have an essay in this anthology. It’s about my experience with misophonia and how a lifetime of sound intolerance and intrusive thoughts have shaped my sense of self.

I’m also excited to be a part of the upcoming Poe-inspired anthology, HIS HIDEOUS HEART, edited by the fabulous Dahlia Adler. I’ll be tackling “The Tell-Tale Heart,” one of my all-time favorite short stories.

In other news, my family has made friends of late with an old scraggly cat who has been visiting us. We had taken to calling her Mrs. Kitty, but when we took her to the vet, we learned that she is a male cat named Orlando. Orlando is very old (16!) but enjoys visiting us and our neighbors–who all feed him. He’s a very sweet kitty.

Spring is here! Enjoy!
