In 1996, I wrote a letter to the tooth fairy

In the letter, I explained why twenty-five cents per tooth was no longer competitive pricing. I cited inflation rates and some dubious peer surveys. I was seven, and the letter worked. From then on, I found crisp one-dollar bills under my pillow, and a persuasive writer was born.

 

When I'm not helping people craft compelling stories, I like to grow gourmet mushrooms, cut up old magazines, and build things out of wood. 

 

I use they/them pronouns—thanks!
