I recently had a story in the inaugural issue of Oyster River Pages. Even better, I’m now journal siblings with my good friend Grace Lanoue, a bad ass writer with a similar style to my own.
“An Unfaded Black” was originally written as some fan-fiction homage to Mad Men, in which Grandpa Sly was actually Grandpa Donald, and Abigail was named Sally. I think trying to keep it in that universe was holding me back from getting weirder than I could’ve been. After a couple years of revision, I made the story my own, and ended up finding a home in this beautiful online publication.
In re-reading it, it still maintains some of its Mad Men style, and I’m happy it does.
