Essay Selected for Forthcoming Dating Anthology

antique vintage typewriterI am pleased to announce that my essay, “Pick Ups at the Dog Park,” has been selected for publication in a forthcoming anthology entitled, Rendezvous in the Rough: Essays from the 21st Century Dating Trenches. Dealing with topics such as online dating, sexting, and dating after divorce, the collection explores what has and hasn’t changed in how we date and find love in the 21st Century.

Edited by Danita Berg and MacKenzie Jennings, both English Professors in Florida, the anthology will contain witty, wry, raw, insightful, and humorous essays on the modern, technology-enhanced dating experience. Which is funny because absolutely no technology, modern or otherwise, is involved in my story. None whatsoever. Nevertheless, it’s a funny little tale.

As always, it’s an honor to have my work published, and I absolutely love the title. Don’t you?

The anthology has a tentative publisher and is expected to be released sometime in 2016. I will keep you posted as I learn more.

Until next time,
