“The Donkey is Definitely Asian” – New Story in the Best Of It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere: Volume One

My short story, “The Donkey is Definitely Asian” is in the debut anthology for the “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” reading series, hosted by Julia Ingalls. The series is held regularly at the Mandrake Bar in Culver City, and has been one of my favorite local events. It was a blast to read there last year, and I’m now thrilled to be included in the Best Of with some incredibly talented writers.
