Surfers and Upcoming Publications

I have a flash up at Sick Lit Magazine, “How to Date a Surfer.” Surfing in 1970s LA, full of crochet bathing suits, Leif Garrett, and “Vals Go Home” graffiti.

I’ve been writing a lot about middle school and friendships.  Two of the flashes from these series are coming out this fall — “Butterfly” in Third Point Press and “Body Like Paper” in New South Journal.  I’m excited to see these two come out! “Butterfly” is based on my own experiences in middle school, and “Body Like Paper” on my daughter’s, at the same middle school.  So we’ve got the late 70s with charm necklaces and roach clips, and the present with Facetime and ballet.  Social dynamics the same.
