My short story, Golden Arches, is set at the Rexdale McDonald’s that I worked at as a teenager. It’s a story about class, poverty, and doing crime. Golden Arches has just been published, along with 22 other poems and stories, as part of Workers Write! Tales from the Classifieds. It’s $2.50 for the PDF, $12.00 for the print version, and $1.99 for the Kindle.
My new creative non-fiction piece, Rest In Peace, Mr. Dionne, is live and free to read in the second issue of Stonecrop Review. It’s the true story of two deeply urban kids finding a way to interact with nature in order properly send off their beloved guinea pig, Mr. Dionne. The artwork, which is both charming and uncanny, is by Holly McKelvey.
The rest of the issue is also beautiful, featuring fiction, non-fiction, poetry, art and photography from around the world exploring the theme of Roots/Routes in urban nature.
