Typically the Orange Coast Review features Southern Californian artists. Having lived there for over 10 years, fortunately I was included despite my new Southern address.

The 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.

One of my erasings was featured from April - May 19, 2016 in the Orange Coast Review Book and Art Exhibition located in The Frank M. Doyle Arts Pavilion at Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, California.

A big thanks to Managing Editor Davi Loren and Art Director Jared Millar. It was a huge honor to participate again for the second year in a row.
