Flash Fiction published in WhiskeyPaper

A short-short of mine, better termed flash fiction, was published today in WhiskeyPaper. If you care to read it, I’d love to hear what you think:

Up to St. Paul

I do hope you enjoy reading this piece. A special shout to Lessa Cross-Smith and Loran Smith for working with me to get this story out into the world.

P.S. Stay tuned to some upcoming publications, including my inclusion in the upcoming print issue of pacificREVIEW, and short fiction in Timber Journal and Lunch Ticket.

    “He had achieved a kind of lived-in feng shui that you might look for in a pair of jeans…”

    That’s my favorite line from this one. Vlad’s place has the distinct aura of a twenty-something wanderer and gave me hints of nostalgia for my time in San Diego. I was a bit surprised there wasn’t any partially burnt sage left behind on Vlad’s table, but no matter. Another fine story as I’ve come to expect from you sir.


    • What can I say–it is difficult not to invent from memory and the things around you. Thanks for reading my work, Josh, and taking the time to let me know about the parts that sang for you. I’m looking forward to catching up sometime soonn.

    Excellent story. I found it on Writer’s Steal. I pinned it to my Pinterest short story board.


  3. Really enjoyed the reckless freedom and raw details in this piece; nicely written!
