Think addiction to lightning and amnesiac lungs. My new collaborative short story collection, Your Sick, has just been picked up by Jellyfish Highway Press! My co-writers are Elizabeth J. Colen and Kelly Magee. Together we invented a catalogue of imaginary illnesses to highlight the perils and pleasures of intimacy.
I'm fascinated by ways humans fail to connect -- our forgettings, our hauntings. Our fragile, torched selves. Yet sometimes forgetting your baby on the bus isn't the end but the beginning of something; sometimes lightning strikes when you most crave heat. We're still in the revision stages of this book process, guided by our editor/publisher, Justin Lawrence Daugherty. Look for Your Sick in 2016.
