Three New Pieces

I have three tiny pieces featured today in Peeking Cat Literary: “Omissions,” “To the Girl I Used to Be,” and “Things C.J. and I Argued about Last Saturday between Lunch and Dinner.” Peeking Cat Literary is a weekly British publication, edited by Sam Rose, featuring “short work including poetry, flash fiction, and anything that inhabits the hybrid space in between.”
