Cicadas in Print

My fiction is being published in the anthology New Lines from the Old Line State!

New Lines from the Old Line State: An Anthology of Maryland Writers features fiction, poetry, and nonfiction by 29 Maryland authors. It is edited by Allyson E. Peltier.

My story, "Cicadas," follows a man returning to Virginia for the first time in seventeen years to be the best man in his friend’s wedding. The cicadas have returned for the first time in seventeen years as well. Stu believes his friend’s newfound romance is doomed to a cicada cycle — a brief buzz of excitement to be followed by years of mundane monotony.

The new anthology Marylanders have been waiting for is premiering in September at the Baltimore Book Festival — the mid-Atlantic’s largest celebration of the literary arts. It will also be available in bookstores and online.

Be on the lookout for more news on the anthology, the book festival, and more coming down the line soon!
