Her work has appeared in jubilatBig BellForklift, and Ohio. Says the San Francisco Chronicle of Hannibal’s new collection: “I couldn’t put the book down and felt by the end like I’d made a sexy new friend who could see, unsettlingly, into my private obsessions.”

His work has appeared in Alaska Quarterly Review; Forklift, Ohio; Kenyon Review Online; The Massachusetts Review; The Sun; Waxwing; Witness, and many other journals.
