My latest story “The Loophole” is now available in issue 25 of the Nonbinary Review. Special thanks to the editors for making the process so easy and for paying their contributors a generous rate.
Issue 25 was prohibition themed and so all of the stories, poems and art had to do with abstinence from alcohol. I am beyond impressed with the works chosen for this edition. The art is bold, the poetry inventive, and the stories immersive. I hope you will purchase an issue and support this publication. I’m honoured to be included with such talented creators.
The Loophole deviates from my other stories in that it’s broken down into short scenes. In 2,500 words, I weave together a coming of age story, in which loyalty, family and corruption are at the forefront. Astute readers may capture the nod to Philip Roth’s “The Plot Against America.”
I enjoyed the challenge of writing a story set nearly 100 years ago. A friend told me that each of my stories is different, that it’s hard to tell that they’re written by the same writer. To me, that’s the greatest compliment an author can get.
As always, please share your thoughts. And thank you for following.
