I have published two scenes from the book I am writing about life and work in Ethiopia and South Sudan.  “What She Wanted,” was published in the Spring 2011 edition of Portland Magazine, the award-winning magazine of University of Portland, in Portland, Oregon.  “Comfort Food,” was published in Georgetown Review’s Spring 2010 issue.

Enjoy, and please write to me with your feedback!  Ck

    • Thanks, Betty. That’s what I’m reaching for–making real events come alive the way our imaginary ones do. History doesn’t have to be boring! Ck

  1. I loved your continued use of “…it wouldn’t have pleased me…”. Made a great connection between the old deaconess’s need/desire and your own feelings.
    There was a lot of emotion in the story. So good.
    Were the crinkles around the old woman’s eyes (after her outburst) a smile???
