Praise for Designing Fate which originally appeared in Ricepaper Magazine, 19.3 Issue:
“Ricepaper’s Speculative Fiction issue is full of inventive, engaging work, including this short story about designer children who aren’t exactly true to the blueprint. I was really engrossed in this piece—the characters are well-drawn, the details are original, and the plot kept me guessing.” -PRISM Magazine
