Last week, I wrote about character inspiration on The Story Prize Blog. This post was sort of personal and took me a long time to write, relatively speaking. The other nominees for The Story Prize (short story writers are nominated by their publishers) have had a lot of interesting things to say about process, favorite collections, and what inspires them.
Vicky Dickson wrote a lovely piece about Mattaponi Queen and me in The Carrboro Citizen. I was pleased that she mentioned my love for the Haw (pictured above).
Beyond the Blurb published a really thoughtful review of Mattaponi Queen today.
These frozen banana bites are easy to make and delicious.
