Guillotine, Spring 2018
“Joan knows it was much easier for her grandparents, but doesn’t know much about exactly how it happened. In the fifties they licked sealed and locked the records. They simply transferred babies from girls to women, quick, anonymous. And her Mimi is dead now and cannot be asked. ” A haunting, rich, & gorgeous story of families found, lost, & chosen, says publisher Sarah McCarry.
Birds of Lace, 2014
“so many of the lines seem as carefully chosen and evocative as poetry. Ruth and Eliza meet in a sign language class, and they are brought closer by working on a group project together. Ruth is lonely, and envies Eliza’s home, which is filled with the presence of her children and husband. They are both drawn to each other, but this isn’t exactly a love story.”

“Domestication Handbook, not appearing, by its thickness (slender) or its cover (of bloodied and pounded meat arranged in symmetry) to be really a handbook on some aspect of farming, is in fact a book of finest pins. I took my time with it, and still it works into me, and I must pause, look up from the sentences, and pull them back out one by one to examine.
It is a poetry-essay hybrid, divided into three parts, and acknowledging an ‘imaginative debt’ as Stone puts it, to Laura Ingalls Wilder (of Little House on the Prairie), but also to The Companion Species Manifesto by Donna Haraway, to children’s books, to Emily Dickinson’s ”hope’ is the thing with feathers…’, to a once secret collection of Lesbian erotica, and yes, guides to country living and raising livestock.”
