SpokeWrite Winter issue!

My hockey-related story, "Vancouver Dreams," has been published in the Winter issue of SpokeWrite, a local journal of writing and arts.

"Vancouver Dreams" is about an ex-college goaltender who gets a shot at the pros thanks to the NHL lockout. It is a little bit of revisionist history, since the lockout ended differently in the real world than in this story, but let's just call that poetic license, okay? :-)

In addition to my fiction, there is an interview about me in this issue. There is also some other great fiction, poetry, essays and photographs, all from regional artists and writers.

SpokeWrite is published by Gray Dog Press, who is also publishing my novel, All That Counts, due out in February.
