2009 Third Place: American Fiction Prize from New Rivers Press

The judge, novelist Clint McCown, selected my story “Souvenirs” for third place from a field of 20 finalists. The story appears in the anthology American Fiction: The Best Previously Unpublished Short Stories by Emerging Writers, Volume 11 from New Rivers Press. (Look for American Fiction on Facebook.) Writer’s Digest has twice chosen the anthology as one of the best places in the United States to publish fiction. Available for order at your local independent bookstore, Powell’s, or Amazon.
