I’m giving away 2 signed copies of my new book, Skin Deep Magic, on my birthday (November 11th). Please enter!
Check out my interview with two-time Shirley Jackson Award winning author Robert Jackson Bennett at the Washington Independent Review of Books. His new novel, City of Stairs, is really good.
Quilts are functional art. In addition to providing comfort and warmth, they can tell stories. Even in the most abstract level, there’s a narrative unfolding.
The third story in my collection, “Mauve’s Quilt” is a kind of quilted narrative, weaving two story strands together. The quilt titular also serves as functional art: an (abstract) expression of an interior landscape and a sanctuary.
*Whether or not this is true is debated.
If you want to hear me read a story from SKIN DEEP MAGIC, I will be appearing at DC Author Festival next Saturday.
It will be held at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Library. Many DC-based authors will be there, including mystery writer George Pelecanos, Tom Doyle and Caroliva Herron. I read at 11 AM, and will be selling copies of my book the rest of the day.
Here is the address:
