Best day in a writer’s life

The Colour of Us

Inspiration in Peru

The best day in a writer’s life is any day an editor says they’ve accepted your piece for publication!

So thrilled that the wonderful online literary magazine The Cabinet of Heed has published my very first short story “The Colour of Us” in its online magazine, mid-June edition. And you can read it for free by following the link. Even better, you can comment, also for free below, where it says “Love to hear your thoughts.” That would be amazing.

The inspiration for my story was the above photo of pots of pigment that I took in a Peruvian market many years ago.

One Human Swimming

One thing leads to another

Almost as good as winning a competition is getting on the short list. My short story “One Human Swimming” made the shortlist for Pulp Literature‘s Hummingbird 2019 Flash Fiction contest. A different story made the long list for this competition in 2018, and this latest story making the short list (2019) means I’m at least going in the right direction. Happy face.

The inspiration for this story was a running shoe. When the story finds its publisher, I’ll tell you. Then you can read it and I hope you will agree it is wonderful.

Things to Come

Swedish Press published a very complimentary review of my 2016 award-winning book Sun Dogs and Yellowcake in their October 2018 issue. In the fall of 2019, it will be publishing a nonfiction piece that I have written. The piece just might have something to do with Swedes in Canada.
