Current interests: Encouraging you to donate money to The Offing (help us get rid of submission fees & pay our writers better!); raising my house plants to be exemplary plants; telling people which books have made me cry in public, which books have made me laugh in public; reading interior design books; and re-upholstering terrible furniture from Goodwill.
