Hard to believe it’s been so long since I updated you all on this writer’s life. There have been a number of exciting events and developments in the past few months.
This past May, I appeared on several panels at my very first WisCon. The convention was a wonderful, welcoming place and I was lucky enough to collaborate with talented fellow panelists as well as meet some great new professional friends.
In November, I participated in the Southeast Wisconsin Festival of Books. Good friend and author Andrea Lochen moderated our discussion of Magical Realism and we were graced with a smart, engaged audience. Thank you to the organizers of WisCon as well as the University of Wisconsin-Waukesha for putting together such successful events.
More recently, I’ve been sitting on some delightful secret news that I now can trumpet to the world: my short story “Keeper of the Glass” has been adapted by NPR’s storytelling program Snap Judgment and is now on air!
The twelve-minute radio play can be streamed from the Snap Judgment website. If you’re a local listener (to me, that is) you can listen to the broadcast this Wednesday, March 16, by tuning in to Detroit’s WDET (101.9 on your radio dial) at 1pm or 10pm EST.
I am very excited to be appearing on this program. Snap Judgment is one of my favorite NPR offerings, and I am so happy with adaptation of “Keeper” crafted by producer (and most excellent narrator) Eliza Smith. Go have a listen! I may be a wee bit biased, but in my opinion, it won’t disappoint.
