This week I’m sharing some personal news (a.k.a. a shameless plug). A short story of mine was just published. It’s my first fiction publication and therefore something of a milestone for me. The piece is called “Peep” and it appeared in the fall issue of The Coachella Review, a literary magazine. You can read the story here.
I’ve confused some of my friends with my eclectic writing interests. My publications to date (scientific papers and now a short story) reflect my writing goals for the future: to write both literary fiction and scientific nonfiction for a general audience. Recently, I’ve been at work revising a novel draft and researching a major neuroscience project meant to share some of the most fascinating facets of the field with nonscientists.
If you wind up reading “Peep” and have any comments, please feel free to post them here. I’d love to hear your thoughts. And my apologies in advance if the story gives you the willies!
