New Publication on Hobart: “Fat Girls”

I am so excited to share that my short story “Fat Girls” has been published over on Hobart today!

This story has been in my head for over ten years, and has taken me two and a half to write and finish, but once it was done, I knew it was done. I also had a strong feeling that Hobart would be its home. It was inspired by a few things, and if anyone is interested in the “Behind the Scenes” story of what inspired this piece, let me know and I‘ll write a blog post about it.

But in the meantime: please, read this story.

I don’t have many answers, but I my hope for you is to read “Fat Girls” and walk alongside the questions. Do you have answers?
