“Lifeguard” chosen as a best-of-the-year piece in creative nonfiction

I received some nice news this week. Connotation Press: An Online Artifact, a highly respected online literary journal, chose my personal essay “Lifeguard” as one of the best pieces published by the journal over the previous year. The introduction to the August 2017 “best of” issue’s creative nonfiction section, and a link to the essay, can be found here:


It’s an honor to be featured with the exceptional writers in this issue. Many thanks to editor Robert Clark Young and the other editors of this wonderful journal.
