Christmas in Cairo, 1993 (Photo by Kacey Dewing)
I am intensifying my search for an agent and/or publisher, and am using this as a place to list the links for my stories (excerpts from two novels) which have been published.
The genre is creative non-fiction (a.k.a. true stories). These were all published in a handful of issues of Mused--Bellaonline Literary Review.
[Following are excerpts from Below Sea Level, novel about 10 years with husband suffering from Borderline Personality Disorder]
Shadow of the Mountains
Dog Day Afternoon*
[Excerpt from The Agoraphobic's Guide to Cairo, about my year abroad in Cairo, Egypt in 1993-94]
Al-Abyaad - The White One (About the horse who did not kill me.)
Nancy Dietrich: In Her Own Words
Further unpublished excerpts can be found on this blog:
Kickback from Below Sea Level
Painting the Town Blue from Below Sea Level
Al-Qitta (The Kitten) from The Agoraphobic's Guide to Cairo
Bustan al-Hayawanat (The Zoo) from The Agoraphobic's Guide to Cairo
