My essay MINT is up live on The Rumpus this morning. This one was a hard, but rewarding one to write; I finished writing it in the darkest hours of my life.

Matthew Salesses had me and Bill Cheng, the author of SOUTHERN CROSS THE DOG, sit down for a talk about writing race--particularly, writing characters of another race, for ALIST Magazine. It was a conversation that enlightened me, and I hope enlightens you.

Here's a little bit of what Bill said:
"For some, fiction is a platform for social activism. And that’s fine if that’s what you’re into. But for me, fiction is a space for asking questions. Can you do this through the lens of an Asian-American character? Yes, of course, but that lens has to be appropriate to the subject. It needs to be useful to and purposeful in the world of the fiction. Otherwise, why do it? I come from the school of thought that believes that writers need to obliterate themselves from their work. It’s only when the last hints of solipsism are gone-- when you stop imposing beliefs on the work-- that something deeper rises to the top."

A little while ago (right before the Apocalypse was scheduled), Guernica Magazine ran a series of flash fiction focused on "End Times." So glad End Times didn't happen, bc you can still read my piece entitled "Maps." It is an excerpt from my novel-in-progress.

I'm stepping back in as Fiction Editor at Kartika Review--and would love to see your story submissions. We're an Asian American litmag--and love to hear from Asian American writers and/or writers-who-write-about-Asian America (be it thematically or characters). bit.ly/OXKOxs
