My friends Jonathan Penton and Vincent Cellucci invited me to read with the Louisiana crew at AWP Portland. I read from my manuscript-in-submissions-hell China Mary as well as a selection from Islanders.
Last fall, Laura Pritchett and I talked about the making of the characters in our books at the ZEE Jaipur Literature Festival @ Boulder. Highlights include writing about sex, telling the same story from multiple points of view, and the ultimate example of an unsympathetic character.
Last month, I read from Islanders at Domi Shoemaker’s Burnt Tongue in Portland, OR. Adam Strong made this beautiful video.
