Sixty Seconds with: Allison K. Garcia

Ten answers to ten questions in 20 words or fewer. That’s less time than it takes to burn a match*.

(*Depending on the length of the match and your tolerance for burned fingers, obviously)


Our newest Flash! Friday winner is Allison K. Garcia.  Read her winning story here, then take one minute to get to know her better.

1) What about the prompt inspired you to write your winning piece? It reminded me of Italy and the mountains, and I pictured all my senses but thought of sight last.

2) How long have you been writing flash? Two or three months.

3) What do you like about flash? If I don’t write anything else all week, at least I wrote something! Also, it’s fun reading other people’s stories.

4) What flash advice would you give other writers? Just try it out. It’s super fun!

5) Who is a writer we should follow, and why? I love Barbara Kingsolver. I also love classic literature. You can learn a lot from reading the greats!

6) Do you participate in other flash contests, and which? Nope. I am loyal to Rebekah. 🙂 Heehee.

7) What other forms do you write (novels, poetry, articles, etc)? I mostly write novels but am foraying a bit into short stories and penny fiction. 

8) What is/are your favorite genre(s) to write, and why? Contemporary. Most recently I wrote some Latino/Chicano fiction, and it was awesomely fun!  

9) Tell us about a WIP. Vivir El Dream: an undocumented college student deciding whether to stay in the shadows or stand up and fight. 

10) How do you feel about dragons? Um… glad they don’t exist in our realm {Editor’s Note: THAT YOU KNOW OF}. Although Pete’s was okay.
