Midwestern Gothic, Issue 11, Fall 2013.

Originally presented as part of Solo Homo 8 with NewTown Writers in June 2010.

Published by the now defunct Q Review it online in June 2011.

I’m honored to be a part of this exciting issue, their first devoted entirely to creative nonfiction.

‘We are an episode of Mad About You. This could only happen to us.’
