  1. Hello! My name is Cameron Vanderwerf, and I’m a student at Hollins Univeristy. I saw you read at the Rosenbach earlier this week, and I also attended the panel one flash fiction panel that you were a part of. I just wanted to let you know that I loved your reading, as well as your enthusiasm for flash fiction and literature in general. I’m bummed I didn’t have a chance to talk to you, but I picked up a copy of Hollows, and I can’t wait to read it. Thanks again for everything!
