The Lampshade

The premiere issue of Green Light Journal includes my flash fiction “The Lampshade.” Nora, who first appeared in “The Jaunty Hat” in July 2016 in Origami Journal, notices a stain on a lampshade in her apartment. Wondering what to do about it becomes a crisis. LINK


What Jesus Wrote

Porridge Magazine in Cambridge, England, posted my essay “What Jesus Wrote.” LINK

The Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles quote the words of Jesus, but they are written in Greek, and Jesus spoke Aramaic. Scholars have long suspected that the writers of these books used a source called Q of Jesus’s sayings. I argue that Q may be a Greek translation of an Aramaic text written by Jesus or his followers.
