Daddy's Little Girl Published in Verdad Magazine
Daddy's Little Girl is a "short story," really a short memoir, I wrote about visiting my father in the Dominican Republic after nearly ten years of being estranged. It has been published by the literary magazine, Verdad Magazine. Verdad, by the way, means "truth" in Spanish. It's interesting to have my little story about the truth of my relationshp with my dad published there. The story begins with my husband's favorite line, "I used to think my father lived in a drawer." The story chronicles my trip and my attempts to come to terms with a father which other family members referred to as my "deadbeat dad."
