“Mother Superior in Hell” Wins the 2017 Orison Anthology Award in Fiction

I’m so honored that my story, “Mother Superior in Hell,” was selected for the 2017 Orison Anthology Award in Fiction by the very talented Justin Torres. His book, We the Animals, took the top of my head off. Orison Books has a gorgeous lineup of books and anthologies, and I love the press’s very open-minded approach to what counts as spiritual literature!
