New Story in Cleavage Collection

June 3, 2008

My latest story for teens, “Profanity,” will be published this Fall in Cleavage – an anthology about mothers, daughters, and body image (Sumach Press). In “Profanity,” teenaged Claudia is repelled by her mother’s pregnant body, referring to her as “the human whale.” Editors Deb Loughead and Jocelyn Shipley preview some of the issues in the anthology in the Parents Canada article “Your Child’s Body Image.”
