Runner-Up in the 2016 Turnbuckle Chapbook Contest from Split/Lip Press, Gather Us Up and Bring Us Home is a collection of flash fiction exploring the lives of small-town girls, of men and women stuck in time and place. A ten-year-old girl finds Jesus at the county fair; a used-car salesman dreams of leaving town the night of his ten-year reunion; a group of girls learn the extent of their power and cruelty at a sleepover. The characters in these stories are alive with restlessness and nostalgia, longing for different lives, for the lovers and mothers that left them behind.
