Animal Stories: A Reading of Poetry and Prose

To celebrate the publication of With Animal, the collection of short stories I wrote with Carol Guess, I am giving a reading with three other fantastic writers of stories and poems about animals this Thursday, November 12, 8pm at Honey Moon in Bellingham, Washington. Please come if you can! There will be books for sale and donations taken for Happy Tails Happy Homes, a local animal rescue organization. My fellow readers are Brenda Miller, Kami Westhoff, and Elizabeth Vignali.

I’m using this picture to advertise the reading because it’s one of my favorites of my kid. It really conveys the Chuck E Cheese experience perfectly. And since my book is about human-animal families, it just seemed to fit.
