DAMTSIO: Origins

Over at the literature news website Real Pants, I talked with WhiskeyPaper co-founder Leesa Cross-Smith about the origins of my new chapbook Don’t Ask Me to Spell It Out:

The collection came together on accident, really. I was at this point where I was writing these little stories, things inspired by real life—myself, friends, whoever—and I realized after a while that there was this common thread: an unnamed narrator, this tinge of loss, or hopelessness, but also hopefulness, I think, in a lot of these stories.

Leesa and Loran at WP have been amazing every step of the way, and I am so, so happy with how DAMTSIO has turned out. Can’t thank them enough.
