press 53 spotlight

Press 53 Spotlight features three of Shaindel’s short stories, “Longing on Hwy 10,” “What to Expect When You’re Introspecting,” and “ISO.” This is the most short fiction of Shaindel’s available in one place–until she finishes her short fiction manuscript. Sadly, this title is going out of print, but there may still be some copies out there.


Shaindel is currently working on a novel and a short story collection.

Two of her short-stories, “A Horse Is a Horse, and Other Lies” and “Winning a Date with Cindy Swanson,” were nominated for Million Writers Awards for 2008 by their respective editors.

Like fiction, but don’t have a lot of time? Shaindel’s been writing short-short stories, too.

The Teaching Assistant and the Math Professor is only 138 words long.


Holiness , Shaindel’s first published short-short story, appeared in Dogzplot in 2007.
