Closed out 2014 with a publication in the latest Rumpus Readers Report, this time on the theme “Remorse.” Big thanks to Susan Clements, who edits the series and always picks a fascinating mix of pieces, and Christina Weidman, who brings them to life with her illustrations. Also honored to be published again alongside a truly gifted writer and friend Jimin Han. Wishing everyone a fantastic 2015!
