I’m thrilled to have a story in Handtype Press’ latest anthology, Tripping the Tale Fantastic, Weird Fiction by Deaf and Hard of Hearing Writers. This anthology « pushes Deaf Lit… and Science Fiction and Horror and Fantasy in a new direction, and in the world of exploration all new directions are bold ones. » My story, Dreaded Silence, is about music.
I’ve been hard of hearing since childhood, and have worn hearing aids since the age of five. I learned to play basic piano and compose by ear, but I’m still fascinated by people who can read sheet music and hear what’s on the page in their heads – which is what lead to my story.
