Praise for "Until Someone Finds Me":

"The short-short is perhaps the most demanding form of fiction, and I know of no writer who meets its demands more superbly than Micaela Myers.  She has an amazing ability to compress into a few pages--sometimes, even, into a paragraph!--the essence of a character and his or her life.  Myers' short-shorts will haunt you for a long, long time."  David Jauss, author of Black Maps

"In work that is poetic and subtle, yet sometimes startling, Micaela Myers reveals a knack for juxtaposing the direct perceptions of childhood with the wisdom of an adult. Her flash fictions capture emotional truth with the brevity and immediacy of a favored clip on YouTube."  Diane Lefer, author of California Transit

"Micaela Myers is a gifted writer with a wonderful feel for language and character.  She writes with a clear mind and a great compassion for the human condition.  Her work gives us insight and perspective." David Ferrell, author of Screwball
