"Year One" published in Pleiades 40.1

If you like comic books, geology, grandparents, the University of Pittsburgh, or Pennsylvania’s vast landscapes, you might like my story “Year One,” which is now available in the latest issue of Pleiades magazine.

To my knowledge, this is the first time my work’s appeared in a journal that’s also published Nobel laureates and Pulitzer winners.

Special thanks to Rosebud Ben-Oni and Jennifer Maritza McCauley. As a writer, it’s wonderful having friends and editors who support, challenge, and lift you up. This was a tough story to write, one that took me in surprising directions and taught me new approaches for research.
