I’m gratefully overwhelmed that my story, “Enigma,” was named to the longlist of the 2016 CBC Short Story Prize. There are some writers on the list I really admire, and it’s great to get this nod from the CBC. The story is part of the collection I have been crafting, Peninsula Sinking. My major themes as a writer–animals, oceans, drugs, and love–come together fast and hard in this short piece. I’m excited to see what happens next in the competition.
