Barton Hollow

Oh, look! It's me! You finally get to see my face, dear readers! And what is that blurry orange rectangle that I'm holding? It's a bird! It's a plane! It's...

Ahem. Let me try that again. I'm quite excited, you see. You would think that an author would have a more coherent way to express excitement than that, but apparently I don't. That's not really important, though. What's important is...


In the Winter 2013 edition of The Marble Collection: Massachusetts High School Magazine of the Arts, there is a short story on page 14 entitled "Barton Hollow," one of five short stories in the issue. And it is mine.

There are very few words to describe how elated I am at this moment.

  1. Amazing, as always. I can certainly see how it got published. The voice was just lovely, and you really set up the world... I can vaguely see the Hunger Games inspiration. And the ending was magnificent. :) The thoughts/italics/all-caps were especially attention-grabbing.... Rankin was cool, if... different. In a kind of Career-ish, snarky way? Well, wonderful job.


    1. Thanks for reading, as always :D Glad you liked it!

  2. This is pretty darn AWESOME, my friend.
