Ciara Shuttleworth has published in journals including The New Yorker, Los Angeles Review, and Cutthroat. Her mother never wears any makeup except lipstick, so Ciara feels it is important to own several tubes of appealing colors. However, she rarely wears lipstick, and gives tubes of unused color away as she finds ever more tempting shades. Someday she hopes to be the kind of woman who leaves sexy kiss marks on wine glasses.
