“A short story is the ultimate close-up magic trick – a couple of thousand words to take you around the universe or break your heart.” – Neil Gaiman

“I am a guy on his early twenties who has a permanent scowl on his face. I like watching films and listening to indie music. Friends call me pretentious, a hipster, and a snob but I deny it to the death even though I believe it in my head. I’m a man of few words but I scream a lot in my thoughts.”

“I am an eclectic reader. My husband is a high fantasy purist and my daughter is a preschooler who loves to sing, dance, and preen in front of the mirror. We want to build our own little library someday, and I know we’ll eventually get there, book by lovely book.”

“I love short stories because I believe they are the way we live. They are what our friends tell us, in their pain and joy, their passion and rage, their yearning and their cry against injustice.” – Andre Dubus
