I’m excited to share that my story “Sasha’s Pattern, Sonia’s Edge” is out now in the Ambition issue of Apparition Literary Magazine! This story explores sibling rivalry, VR technology, and games and puzzles. There’s also an author Q&A where I explain more about the story’s inspiration.
As for the issue’s theme, I’ve been thinking a lot about ambition the past couple years. The decision to go to grad school didn’t come easily for me, especially due to the impact on my husband and young kids. When I was growing up, my dad worked very hard and was very fortunate to have a great career, but he always prioritized family. I’ve always looked up to him for that. Ambition can be so personal and play out in a number of ways, which I think makes it a fascinating theme to explore in fiction.
