Introducing Randa

Good news, kids. I’ve asked the one and only Randa Jarrar to appear as regular Friday blogger on Moorishgirl, and I’m delighted to announce that she has agreed. Randa’s stories have appeared in Ploughshares, Sex and the Umma, and Eyeshot. She won the Million Writers Award earlier this year. She outlines the difficulties of writing her first novel (mainly procrastination in the forms of single motherhood, trailer living, food, Namco, excessive moving, a punk rock plumber, Kafka tattoos, and a homeless SCA guy) in the current issue of Kitchen Sink. She also has stories in Dinarzad’s Children, the first anthology of Arab-American fiction. She lives in Austin, Texas, where her days are spent revising, fantasizing about November 3, playing poker with her kid, and making strangers feel uncomfortable. So, please stop by and say hi to Randa tomorrow. I’ll be back next week.
