Take Flight

I'm thrilled to announce that my short story, "Exposure," was a finalist in the 2015 Reynolds Fiction Prize, awarded by the Center for Women Writers. Congratulations to all involved!

In other news, tomorrow night is Play On Words: Take Flight at San Jose's Cafe Stritch. I'm so unbelievably excited. This production represents more than six months of dedicated work--soliciting submissions, collaborating with artists and performers, networking with San Jose businesses. Tomorrow will be our biggest, boldest show yet, showcasing the work of 13 Bay Area writers. We even got a mention in the San Jose Mercury News! On my birthday, no less. It has been a good week.

The pursuit of creativity is often as wonderful as any one "thing" we can create. And the beat goes on.
