The stories are “The Heart of a Monkey,” a retelling of a Swahili beast fable, and “The Intersection,” a four-page passage in which a kid detective solves a case of a bicycle accident at a farmer’s market. »

Appearances at the Tucson Festival of Books

This Saturday afternoon, I’ll have the pleasure of giving a reading and moderating a panel at the Tucson Festival of Books, an event that attracts upwards of 130,000 attendees each year, making it one of the top-five literacy festivals in the country. This festival, completely free and open to the public, funded only by sponsors & exhibitors, has donated $1.25 million to local literacy providers since its inception seven years ago. More than 1,800 community volunteers help the event run. It is a sight to behold! »


Erin edited a two hundred-page memoir for me and returned it with embedded commentary as well as the expected editing. She has an ear for voice in a piece and is able to point out places the voice changes.”
