I’ve recently been published in an anthology about motherhood – having one, being one, not being one, etc…

Mine is about the day my mom and I got honest with each other about our lives.

The book is really lovely and Putnam published it and in the mail, when I received the contributor’s copy. The package included a letter and at the bottom of that letter was a penguin. A PENGUIN! You know – Penguin, as in publishing and New York City. Putnam established in 1838. Wahoo!Penguin

Here it is! The anthology you’ve all been waiting for about, for, by, because of mothers – the good ones, the bad ones, and every one in between. I wrote a story about the time my mom and I had a real meeting of souls about sexual autonomy, birth control, and long-held secrets. You can buy it on pre-sale now.
