The Spitsbergen Dog and The Twelve Sisters of Scurvy

The first excerpt of my novel-in-progress has been published in Leaf Litter, the literary and arts magazine put out by the Portland-based arts and activism group Signal Fire. I couldn’t be more delighted for my work to be included in their Wolf Issue. What a fitting home for the Spitsbergen Dog and his covey of Sisters. You can order it and find out whether Maaike climbs the World Tree, deep in a cave in Svalbard!


Signal Fire’s fifth issue of Leaf Litter features writing and art by artists who traveled to three areas in the American West with wolves. Signal Fire is an organization that engages artists in our remaining wild places.
