April 2022 Publications!

| May 5, 2022

I’ve got several new publications out this past month! My poem, “Here, I Rule,” appears in the April Not One of Us. This is a small printed zine, which you can order directly from the publisher. The poem is a look at a child’s adventure to another world. My drabble, “Consequence,” appeared in Martian: The […]

March 2022 Publications

| April 7, 2022

I’ve had a bunch of publications in March, and all of them are smaller pieces! “The Fall of Ocrone” was published in Martian last year, but recently, the Superfast Stories YouTube Channel produced an audio and video version of my story! It’s a quick sci-fi listen/watch (it’s only 100 words), and I love how it […]

February 2022 Publications!

| March 10, 2022

I had three new pieces out in February, all different sorts and lengths! “Promises Made” was accepted for the Glittery Literary Anthology Four and appeared early in the month. It’s an urban fantasy microfiction story about curses and promises related to the fae. The second one was one of the longest titled stories I’ve had […]

My November 2021 Publications

| December 9, 2021

I only had a couple of new stories out in November, far fewer than the abundance of October! My flash fiction piece, “There Is No ‘I’ in Heavenly Host,” came out in Friends Journal at the beginning of the month. This was for their special speculative fiction issue, and I got the idea for it […]

New Publications in October 2021

| November 4, 2021

October was a BUSY month for new publications for me, with stories out throughout the entire month, plus one poem! “Just Smile,” a flash piece, was my first publication of the month at The Dread Machine. It’s a yokai story, this one about the hari onago. If you’ve heard of this yokai before, you’ll understand […]

Story and Poem Out Recently!

| August 5, 2021

I’ve had a story and a poem out within the past month! “Terpsichore” was reprinted in Horror for the Throne, which is a collection of very short horror and dark reads. My story involves a dance instructor, a candlelit dance studio, and a “muse” who might not be what she seems. My poem, “The Message,” […]

My Sci-Fi Publications

| July 27, 2021

Although I’ve published a lot of books, there’s only one sci-fi book in the mix, and it’s the most recent one! New Moons Under Which to Sleep is a collection containing previously published sci-fi short stories, flash fiction pieces, and a couple of poems, joined by a couple of poems that were new to the collection. […]

Two New Poems Out!

| May 6, 2021

I’ve got two new poems out in the most recent issue of Utopia Science Fiction Magazine. You can find “The Garden Trellis” and “Terraformer of Bigotry,” along with a bunch of stories and other poetry, in the April/May 2021 issue! “The Garden Trellis” is a sci-fi poem based on a common enough item, while “Terraformer of […]

Three More Stories!

| August 13, 2020

I’ve got three stories out recently. The first is a podcast version of a story previously published at Intrinsick, “Dakota Travis, Saurallero Extraordinaire,” which the Manawaker Flash Fiction Podcast posted in late July. In case you always wanted to have a slightly humorous obituary read to you, here’s your chance. The second is a new […]

Two New Poems Out Recently

| April 16, 2020

I’ve got two new poems out recently, one of which you can read online! “To the Underworld” was published in issue 74 of Abyss and Apex. It’s a Cascade poem that is loosely tied to Persephone. “Schrodinger’s Tardigrades” was published in issue 43.1 of Star*Line. It’s my response to learning that there are tardigrades (aka water bears) […]
