(“New” in the very provisional sense that is the publishing schedule, meaning I wrote “Made of Mud” a few years ago and sold it last year.)
Available in the newest, very excellent, Shimmer Magazine.
It’s funny. I just finished revising a middle grade novel about a preteen super genius. As I read through the manuscript, I kept thinking that in part what I’ve written is a fantasy of what I wish middle school was like for me. This story, “Made of Mud,” is a little closer to the way I remember the real thing.
