I’m so delighted to announce that my short story “Krishna Blue” will be in the amazing lineup of the forthcoming YA speculative fiction anthology Kaleidoscope. Check it out below!

(Yay, wonderful diverse fiction that isn’t just about being diverse!)

This story is particularly dear to my heart; I began it in 2006 at Clarion, when I had the idea of an artist who eats colors, and then I kept rewriting it over the years until I finally got it right. And now it’s in . . .

Wonderful! If you post a link when it goes up, then, I shall certainly obtain it!

Again, congrats! It's always so exciting to be a part of interesting anthologies like this...most of my experience in that department is of non-fiction, but I hope to get a bit more fiction done eventually. ;)
