My drabble is up at Daily Science Fiction. Takes about three breaths to read. Plenty of time to get back to work on that knitted balaclava and maybe pull some weeds in the garden.
Look at how lovely! Each cover hand painted and hand-sewn. Only 50 in the world. My poem, “Snow Queen in Exile” feels wrapped in creative joy.
Which is amazingly awesome! I’m really honored Meow Meow Pow Pow chose my piece to nominate. There are lots of fantastic stories in the cue, and it feels good just to be standing in line.
My flash story, “Snapdragons Come Back Every Year” is now up at F(r)iction, just in time for some campy Halloween goofiness. So read on if you are interested in seeing what may happen when the couch bursts into blooms of gerbera daisies and a thistle seeds itself into your coffee cup.
Also, the art by Hailey Renee is divine.
Hello all! This happened a few weeks ago, but somehow I forgot to mention it here! Super excited to see this one up in the newest edition of Twist in Time magazine.
The impetus behind this story was a contest that assigned very specific prompts: a story written in Japan during the 1890’s. A lot of research later, I hope the story captures a window of the time period with just a smidgeon of fantasy.

Excited to see this competition anthology out today with some pretty awesome authors and stories! Love that I was able to get a little something in here as well. After Midnight at the Dreamer’s Charity Ball is an ethereal piece – including a fully feathered orchestra, acorn nut pastries, bedroom slippers, and the sweet memory of strawberries.

It took a minute longer than we thought – but my story is live in Andromeda Spaceways. And look at that art! Excited to be in this one. Brooke, the editor, was lovely! Entanglement Issues in Magical Workplace Accidents is ready to remind you to be wary about taking on too much work, especially the kind that might make it hard for you to leave your job. https://andromedaspaceways.com/product/asm-78/
Waking up with fireworks to see my story on the longlist for the Smokey Flash Fiction Award! Authors will find out later in June if we made the shortlist. But the longlist is crazy awesome and has me seeing all the colors!
Excited for the news that my story “After Midnight at the Dreamer’s Charity Ball” will be in this compilation. It was a little ethereal, but sometimes the characters go that way. 🙂 I’ll post again when it is live. Thinking of everyone!!
