The Birthright of Sons (story collection) Urbandale, IA
My current project is The Birthright of Sons, a collection of stories centered around the experience of marginalized people, namely Black and LGBTQ+ men. The stories are linked by an exploration of identity and the ways personhood is shaped through interactions with the people, places, and belief systems around us.
