Happy New Year! We’re ringing in 2015 with two fabulous authors, Renée Thompson and Tracy Guzeman. See you soon!
Renée Thompson’s stories have appeared in Crossborder, Narrative, Literal Latte, Arcadia, Animal: A Beast of a Literary Magazine, 10,000 Tons of Black Ink, and Chiron Review. She has placed as a finalist in competitions sponsored by Narrative, Literal Latte, Glimmer Train, and Writer’s Digest. She is the author of two novels, The Plume Hunter and The Bridge at Valentine, which was recently selected as the 2014 community book for Woodland Reads. She is currently working on a new novel.
Tracy Guzeman, still a Midwesterner at heart, grew up outside of Chicago, and received her degree in landscape architecture from Iowa State University. She has held various marketing positions in Silicon Valley start-ups, and for the past seventeen years has owned her own company, providing event management and consulting services across a wide range of industries. A Pushcart Prize nominee, and a featured author for the 2014 Twitter Fiction Festival, her work has been published in Vestal Review, Glimmer Train, and Gulf Coast, where her story “Einstein” received honorable mention for the Donald Barthelme Prize for Short Prose. Her first novel, The Gravity of Birds, was published by Simon & Schuster, and foreign rights have sold to ten countries. Of the novel, the San Francisco Chronicle writes, “Guzeman’s book is about sibling rivalry, tragedies and resurrections. And it’s irresistibly exquisite.” She is currently working on her second novel.
