Featured Interview With Nancy Stohlman
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I was actually raised a military brat, so we moved every couple of years. My formative childhood years were spent overseas, Germany and Spain, and then I landed in Omaha Nebraska just in time for teenaged.
Travel continued for me as I spent many years as a traveling artisan and gypsy at the Renaissance Faire before I landed in Denver.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
Age 7. I was writing by age 9, not only writing but volunteering at the library on weekends.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I like the lyrical and the absurd. I love Nabokov, Hemingway, Kerouac, Atwood, Kafka,
I’m driven by omission–what is left out. What is not said. I think there is an art to implication, and that is why I’m passionate about flash fiction.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
The Vixen Scream and Other Bible Stories is my first solo flash fiction collection (I’ve been the editor of three flash fiction anthologies as well). Called “Hilarious, irreverent, twisted, bawdy, and brilliant,” it exposes the power and delight of highly crafted stories in small spaces. With “hints of Kafka, Hoffman, Borges”, these stories are surreal, sensual, farcical, absurd, and deeply human, woven together by the mysterious and seductive presence of The Fox.
