Hot Off the Press

I did a reading and Q&A for Expat Sofra on Facebook Live! If you missed hearing “Roots Like Museum Pieces” and hearing me talk all about my thoughts on the possibility of a museum on the Population Exchange, how my non-fiction writing informs my fiction writing, and me just geeking out over the Greeks of Turkey, you can watch the replay.  Get your copy of the anthology featuring essays by 33 foreign women who have lived in Turkey by writing to the editors at [email protected].

If you live in Turkey, you can buy your copy online or in bookstores.
