I was informed this morning that my short story, “Possession,” which appeared in Gargoyle Magazine earlier this year, was nominated for a 2013 Pushcart Prize. Crazy, because it’s fiction and I don’t even often admit that I “do fiction,” so this is double-crazy/exciting to me. I am honored to be with other Gargoyle nominees Mary Kay Zuravleff, Nic Small, Wayne Karlin, Amanda J. Bradley, and Daniel M. Shapiro. I guess the moral of this story (the nomination, not my story) is to do things you’re afraid of!
