About the Author
In 2013, I took my daughter on an errand to Home Depot during which she fell out of the shopping cart and landed head first on the concrete floor. Panic ensued. I was already panicked about the state of my life. I was in this weird transitional period, trying to figure out how to be a father and an artist at the same time. Writing this short story gave me an opportunity to meld those two things and lifted my spirits at a point where I badly needed a lift.
After the story placed third in Glimmer Train's New Writers contest, I felt encouraged to try to expand the tale of this little girl with an uncanny memory. Now it's a novel called The Reminders and I've included the first two chapters after the short story.
The Reminders will be published on May 30 and is available for preorder now at valemmich.com.
