For our readers who may not be familiar with your work, what’s the most accurate thing someone else has said about it?
I think Mark Bibbins said it best: “A little dark, a little damaged, a little deranged…and never short on the titular organ [the heart], which also acts as mouth and mind… some of what’s coming in and out are flashes of light that you can read it by.”
What have you read/watched/listened to/looked at/ate recently that will permanently change our readers' lives for the better?
Coeur de Lion by Ariana Reines (Fence Books). Forevs.
Whose ghostwritten celebrity tell-all (or novel) would you sprint to the store to buy (along with a copy of The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius so that the checkout clerk doesn’t look at you screwy)?
Have you ever been a Starving Artist, and did it make you brilliant, or just hungry?
I’ve been an artist at starving. I’ve been a girl. I shrank, got cold and wrote too tiny.
What would you characterize as an ideal interaction with a reader?
Making out on darkened street corners.
Have you ever written anything that you'd like to take back?
Yes. My last answer, probably next week.
