Some Thoughts on “Mold”: Sort of an Awards Eligibility Post

My short story “Mold” appeared this summer in the anthology¬†Survivor, edited by JJ Pionke and Mary Anne Mohanraj, and published by Lethe Press. I’m tremendously proud of both my story and the other outstanding works in that volume. I highly recommend the anthology as a whole for any eligible categories in 2019.

That said, I don’t know if I can write something like “Mold” again, in part to what I learned recently about my family history. I don’t even know if I’ll be able to read it again.

There will be no details, not for … let’s say a decade or two.

All I can say is that I love my mother and my stepfather very much, and I’m happy to have both in my life. I cannot say the same for my birth father.

I’ve turned off comments for this post.
