So excited that my copies of THE PINCH are here! Proud to have my essay about Mary Todd Lincoln from my WIP THE LUNATICS' BALL included in their spring issue (purchase here). This is my third appearance in THE PINCH (once online, twice now in print), a magazine that I love.
The essay is short, but as so many short essays in THE LUNATICS' BALL, lit required a lot of research. So many interesting facts and quotations! I was overwhelmed, and it was only when I was in Ojai at the Bending Genres writing retreat, all of my research notes and books at home, that I managed to express what I wanted to say in the form of a letter.
Turns out that FIVE SOUTH is having website problems and their new issue (with my Bartleby/Wings of Desire story) won't be out for a few weeks. Something to look forward to.
