I’ve been away from short fiction ever since “What It Is to Smell of Man” was published in 2017.

That changes this Friday.

The last two years have been marked by change, personally, professionally, and on the page. Where my fiction is concerned, my focus has been exclusively on novel-length media, apparent in the publication of Accounting for It AllImminent Dawn, and Mourning Dove.

In recent weeks, however, there’s been a shift. I’ve returned to writing in short bursts with different emphases and centering that which I write on more personal matters.

Through daily reflections posted over the course of this week, we’ll explore this shift and the themes that underwrite my forthcoming short, “State Line,” the story of a widower confronting a recent loss and interstate stereotypes.

So stay tuned, and ready yourselves not only for “State Line,” but for my debut on Wattpad, where this flash fiction piece will be published on Friday.

Write on. Write well. Be your best you.
