I’m thrilled to have a new story up on Monkey Bicycle called “One of the Fighting Fish.” Many thanks to the editors for giving me the opportunity. It’s been a nice stretch of publishing for me (Brilliant Corners, Word Riot, Seven Days, and now Monkey Bicycle) and I’m glad to be getting more of my work out there and about the positive reaction it’s been getting. Thanks to everyone for their support! Sitting alone in my office with nobody but the computer for reassurance, it’s nice to know there are readers on the other end. Cheers!
Benjamin RoeschI am a novelist and short story writer living in Burlington, Vermont. My work has appeared in Brilliant Corners, Word Riot, Seven Days, Monkey Bicycle and other fine purveyors of the written word. Mostly, this blog will chronicle my writing life. But I’m restless. And writing can get tiresome to hear about, even if it’s the thing that makes you go boom. So don’t be surprised to find the occasional album or book review, recipe, political musing, notes on a recent home brewing endeavor, writing tutorial, anecdote, or rhetorical question into the ether. Thanks for coming. Stay a while.
