Working on an MFA

I've ramped up my writing since starting an MFA in fiction last summer, and I've been writing and reading like mad.  I now have a first draft of my new novel "Earth Works", about a young woman about to meet her father after 14 years.  On top of that she's trying to prove herself in her new job as greenhouse manager at a CSA (community supported ag) farm, and trying to decide between Zach, a good looking beef farmer, and Vlado, the field manager who is always ready with a joke.

This past year I had a story published in Persimmon Tree, "A Good Session" about an evolutionist that gets a visit from a hot Jehovah's Witness.  http://www.persimmontree.org/v2/summer-2014/a-good-session/

My story Quesasomthings is in the Jan. 2015 issue of r.kv.r.y.    A lonely pre tenure prof can't get a conversation started at a stuffy faculty party, until she runs into an equally lonely potter.
