Kathy Fish Interviews Me!

Kathy Fish
Kathy Fish--one of the most solid and exciting voices in flash fiction--has asked me a few questions about my writing process for Mary Aker's r.kv.r.y quarterly literary journal. I hope you'll check it out. It turns out to be quite a personal look at my writing.

Recently, Fish and her co-author Robert Vaughan, published the flash fiction collection RIFT. If you haven't already ordered it, you can HERE.

And that's all I have for you today. I know you're thinking "Why hasn't Christopher posted a story about his travels lately? This blog is after all called I Must Be Off! not I Must Stay Chained to My Chair in my Dusty Office! Well, as soon as I find the key to the chain, I'll be off again. Soon. To Spain! But in the meantime, you can check out Kathy Fish's interview with me.

I must be off,
