Edits are exciting

The edits of Rafael Has Pretty Eyes are underway. It so exciting to see the stories in this collection become the best versions of themselves.

Working with the brilliant Bethany Gibson on edits of my collection. Bethany edited my novel Going Fast, which was my most complex work, and so I look forward to her input again. I have taken chances in this collection and I hope to surprise readers.

Thrilled that Goose Lane will be publishing my new short story collection. I am beyond happy to be back.

Thanks to Susan Juby for saying lovely things about the Most Heartless Town in Canada while appearing in Shelagh Rogers.  Susan called my book the Canadian version of The Family Fang, which was both generous and uplifting.
