On My Daughter’s First Publication

Outside In Magazine issue 13 just came out and with it two stories, one by me AND one by my daughter, Paloma Garcia-Couoh. They fit together of course, but also work separately. I guess watching your mom sit and type day after day on a laptop in the corner can rub off on you. But honestly? I wish my mind worked and created the way Paloma’s does.

Here’s her story:The Flower that Never Bloomed

and here is mine:

Birth of a Writerchick

Read the whole issue. It’s got some great stories in there.
