I welcome short story author Bobbi Chukran today to Summer Short Story Spectacular, Season 1, Episode 10. Hard to believe there's been 10 episodes already! If any of you have missed any of the episodes, just click on the links to the side of this blog and you'll get caught up on some great reads!
Bobbi Chukran is a native Texan, born in Ft. Worth. She grew up in Grapevine then moved to Austin to earn a B.A. degree in Studio Art/Design. Her first article was published back in 1982. Bobbi wrote and published non-fiction for over 25 years until she finally turned her attention to fiction. Her first historical mystery novel, Lone Star Death, was published in 2006 and she launched her contemporary Nameless, Texas short story series last year.
Bobbi lives in a small town outside Austin where she has numerous opportunities to observe strangeness and quirkiness---all fodder for her fiction.
What is your all-time favorite short story, Bobbi and why?
My favorite free story is "Sadie and the Museum Lady," published in the excellent online 'zine, The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature.
Well, Bobbi, I read Aunt Jewel and the Poisoned Potlikker and even though I'm a northerner through and through it was positively delightful! There are some things that are universals, and small towns wherever they may be all have certain things in common. Where can my readers find you, Bobbi?
