Larry Smith of Bottom Dog Press published the first story I ever had published entitled "Layoff". Then, he went on to publish my first collection of short stories, Emergency Stopping and Other Stories. Most recently, he published my novel, Landscape with Fragmented Figures.
When I think of it...he's been a big part of my literary career.
I just found out there's an interview with Larry over at Word Riot. Check it out: here.
