My Belgian boy and ostriches got the cover just this month! Thanks to Jared Millar and Davi Loren for choosing my Magic Realist paintings to be the visual entry point as writers read from the podium, their work became form immediately. It was quite an honor!
If you haven't heard of the Orange Coast Review the description below is from the curator and book designer, Jared Millar.
"Orange Coast Review is an eclectic convergence of literary fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, interviews and art. Think of it as a portable salon, a place where boundaries are broken and styles morph, a celebration of creative diversity.
The 2015 issue includes a wide array of work from established and emerging writers based in Southern California, Canada, and the U.K., including a compelling interview of Raymond Obstfeld, author of over 50 books and a dozen screenplays. Andrew Tonkovich, editor of the Santa Monica Review, contributes a scathing satire of Twitter-driven values, and Kathleen MacKay entertains readers with a tall tale about an eccentric child. Michael Bourne’s engrossing exploration of racial isolation and fear will undoubtedly provoke discussion. We are particularly pleased to be the first to publish a story by Julian Guise, a remarkable new talent."
