Folks, I've been trapped in a torture dungeon known as an MFA program for the last three years. Enough is enough. I've finished the degree and returned to writing what I enjoy most--fiction where stuff happens! I'm honored to have a crime story in the third issue of ALL DUE RESPECT. Other folks coming to that party include Jake Hinkson, Patti Abbott, and Chris Leek, just to name a few. If you haven't caught up with the magazine version of ADR, you're missing something very special. Chris Rhatigan and company have put together an entertaining journal that combines fiction with reviews and interviews. It's the kind of publication you look for at your local magazine rack and simply can't find.
