Today’s guest on Nature Bats Last is author Vanessa Blakeslee;

“Vanessa Blakeslee has been the recipient of several awards, including the 2016 IPPY Bronze Medal in Literary Fiction and the 2014 IPPY Gold Medal in Short Fiction. With her latest collection of short stories, Perfect Conditions, Blakeslee will likely add another award to her collection. Perfect Conditions is, in a word, lonely. The characters that Blakeslee creates are as complex as they are interesting. The one commonality that all of the short stories in this collection seem to share is that the characters are all lost in some way or another. This theme not only ties the stories to each other, but it also relates to the reader, as it is true to the human experience.”
Vanessa will be writer-in-residence this fall at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology in Oregon
