I'm a late bloomer when it comes to submitting my writing. My first published story was in FLAPPERHOUSE, a super cool zine based in Brooklyn, though I didn't realize they were so close when I was submitting to them. Anyway, when you first start submitting to journals it can be overwhelming. I spent a lot of sleepless nights checking out bios and following trails. I ran into a review of my beloved FLAPPERHOUSE at Quail Bell, and decided to submit. I think I was looking for something to sink my teeth into and so, instead of just submitting, I decided to apply to be a regular QB contributor, et voila, I'm still here!
