It’s the end of summer—the height of nature’s bounty at the Farmer’s Market—and I’m not doing too badly with a harvest of juicy publications, too. My latest is a short literary piece called "Everything They Say About Sailors Is True" which appears in the brand-new issue of the literary webzine Storyglossia. It’s a coming-of-age “play-let” set in Virginia Beach, edgy, a bit experimental. As you might expect, there’s a lot of sex in it, but definitely some bitter mixed in with the sweet. I’m also especially proud to be in this month’s Storyglossia line-up because it’s a pub I’ve had my eye on for a while!
I like to think of myself as a writer who straddles the literary and erotica genre (because, well, I like straddling things ;-) and I’d be curious how readers would compare this take on sex to my latest stories in such spicy Rachel Kramer Bussel anthologies as Tasting Him and Tasting Her. Of course, one of my main motivations in all of my writing is to capture a tiny little fragment of that elusive concept I'll call The Truth About Life. I hope with this story, at least I’ve closed my fingers around some gems of authenticity about sailors on shore leave…let me know if you think it’s true!
