I am writing to tell a story. This story belongs to me but not me alone. It's a story of rattlesnakes and droughts and baby pigs raised in bathrooms of trailer homes. It's a story of abundance, built on scarcity folklore. It's an investigation into cynicism and dark humor and waves of forgiveness. It's the story of religion and rape and secrets.

I write to live.
