Violated Norms, a flash fiction piece inspired by an encounter on the streets of Harrisburg, is forthcoming in the October 2018 issue of The Bitchin’ Kitsch.
New Writing Project
I’m happy to announce that I and my writing partner, Anniken Davenport, have a new non-fiction writing project. Tentatively titled Saving Fell’s Point: How an Englishwoman, a Jazz Musician and a Senator Saved an American Treasure from the Wrecking Ball, the book will tell the story of a battle over an interstate highway extension that would have altered the history of the city of Baltimore forever. Here are real-life characters, an eccentric band of strangers brought together by happenstance, who take on ‘progress’ to save a uniquely American waterfront community where the ‘Three B’s” – Boarding Houses, Bars and Brothels – once ruled. The fourth B – Bertha’s Mussels, the iconic Fell’s Point eatery, was the epicenter of the fight.
Stay tuned for updates as we prepare a book proposal. I will post updates and excerpts here as time and progress allows.
