Current/Past Positions Held

Praise for The Inconvenience of Grief:

“Stabile approaches loss in the most honest, unadorned way—and yet somehow never sinks, even in the deepest, most vulnerable waters. She invites us to take a deep breath and dive in, too, and I’m so glad I did. What a marvel this collection is!”
     -Hannah Grieco, editor of Already Gone and And If That Mockingbird Don’t Sing

"Witnessing this emotional archiving is to witness how we reclaim power over our histories—on the other side of understanding it is the power to remember it, to forget it, to forgive those who authored it.”
     -Dr Taylor Byas, author, instructor, freelance editor

"Buy this book, read it, and you’ll find yourself returning to it over and over for the rest of your life.”
     -Todd Dillard, author of Ways We Vanish

Praise for
Something Dead in Everything:

"I could never have imagined a collection of stories so delightful about death! Stabile’s lively macabre inventions enchanted me with their comic hauntings and thrilling rage."
     -Polly Rosenwaike, author of Look How Happy I'm Making You

"I'm into this *thumbs up*."
     -Ryan Norman, author of Cicada Song

Praise for Good Morning to Everyone Except Men Who Name Their Dogs Zeus:

"Stabile wields excellent craft and a razor-sharp intelligence in these beautiful and unflinching poems."
     -Todd Dillard, author of Ways We Vanish
