Tina debuted with us on Episode 19 back in October 2015. I am delighted to have Tina making her sixth appearance on our final flash fiction episode. If you enjoy Tina’s work, I hope you’ll have a listen to all of her past contributions to the show:
Tina Tocco’s flash fiction has appeared in Roanoke Review, Potomac Review, River Styx, Crab Creek Review, Harpur Palate, Passages North, Portland Review, Italian Americana, and other journals. Her work for young readers can be found in various magazines, including Highlights, Cricket, Spider, Humpty Dumpty, and Turtle Magazine for Preschool Kids.
