The Last Update of 2020

A new story, and a gift I want...

Hello! This will be very, very brief.

“The Cleaners”

As part of the Faraway Collection of modern fairytales from Amazon Original Stories, “The Cleaners” is out today.

If you’re a member of Amazon Prime or a subscriber to Kindle Unlimited, this story (and the other stories in the collection) is available to you for free. There is also an audio version narrated by the wonderful Kate Rudd. Non-members can get the story for $1.99, with the audio narration added for free.

I loved telling this fable (loosely inspired by the Princess and the Pea) about the power of memory and self-narrative. If you enjoy it, please leave a review!

Besides me, the other authors in the collection are Gayle Forman, Nic Stone, Rainbow Rowell, and Soman Chainani.

A Measure of Good Faith

The Washington Post published “What Money Can’t Buy,” a holiday guide to “gifts that don’t exist but should.” I contributed a little piece — something I really wish we had, especially in a turbulent and strange time like this.

Happy holidays! I’ll see you in 2021.
