  1. I reread several of your stories today. They’re so diverse I found it hard to pin down why they still sound like the same author, but I feel that it’s the common theme of misperception or the fallibility of human perception. There is some form of failed connection or communication in every story. Sometimes it’s funny, sometimes sad, but always central to what’s going on.

    Why are you not submitting these for publication, or are you?
