“Timmy Reed’s sense of detail and description astounds me and makes me jealous, that he threads so much of that through this Miraculous Fauna is nothing short of, well, miraculous. Baby Rachel is a beautiful monster and the novel is full of great compassion. Miraculous Fauna is one of the most fantastic and one of the most fucked up novels I’ve read in years.”
- Michael Kimball Author of Us, Big Ray, and Dear Everybody

The one and only Beach Sloth did a write-up for Artichoke Haircut’s Literary Carnival this Saturday evening, which I will be reading palms at. I especially like that he gave me a shout out in the same sentence with Poe (and Megan Boyle!) Thank you , Beach Sloth.

Another blurb for my story collection, Tell God I Don’t Exist, just came in. This time from Michael Kimball (whose novels are some of my absolute favorites and always manage to break my heart and make me laugh):
“Timmy Reed’s stories are so strange and so funny that it’s impossible to stop reading them. There is a great imagination at work in Tell I God I Don’t Exist and I’m grateful to have been a witness to it.”
– Michael Kimball, author of Dear Everybody and Big Ray
