My story, “A Little Bit of Sunshine” began while I was attending the Solstice MFA Program at Pine Manor College. I was taking a class from the amazing David Yoo about beginnings.  One of our assignments was to write the first sentence of a story. The opening sentence to my piece is what I wrote.

I had no idea what the story was going to be about, but I kept thinking about the opening sentence and all the possibilities that came with it.  I’ve written several drafts of this story, but the piece that will be published in SUCKER Volume 2 (I am so excited!) was by far my favorite.

I had a great time working with the SUCKER team to make this piece become more than I ever could imagine. The staff is honest but kind, and I truly felt like their main goal was to make my piece the best it could possibly be.
