It has taken almost twenty years of living in New Orleans for Julia Carey to be able to write about the small town in New Mexico where she grew up. "Heart on a Sleeve," is part of a growing collection of short stories all set in Carlsbad. When not dredging childhood fodder for those tales, she writes poetry, reworks a novel, teaches in the Bard Early College and Xavier University English Departments, and cultivates her toddler's love of books. Her work can be found at Mason's Road, Tiferet Journal, the anthologies New Orleans: What Can't Be Lost and Louisiana In Words, as well as her website, juliacarey.com.
