Personal Writing

  1. New Author's Website/Blog

    The most up-to-date listing of my fiction in print is now available, along with a general blog, at (publication listing at [URL][/URL]).
  2. Further Updates to this Blog

    As you can see, I haven't been the most faithful updater of this blog lately. It isn't that I haven't sold more stories--I have!--but I've failed to keep track of them here. Partially this is the fault of school, the pressures of exams, research projects, and my preparations to apply to graduate school. It's also partially because I've been keeping track of my publications elsewhere, in my Absolute Write Water Cooler Library Thread. That's where I suggest you go in the future to keep track...
  3. Aqua Vitae from WolfSinger Publications

    Jenes Inarya wants to experience everything, and quite frankly, she doesn't think she can live life to the fullest in the time she's been allotted. A search through lore and legend from the Eight Immortals of Chinese myth to the Garden of Eden finally leads her to what she seeks--across the galaxy, to the planet of Arak. By eating food prepared from Arak's immortal plants, Jenes can alter her metabolism and gain eternal life. In her case, it’s a cup of palm wine. A real aqua vitae. But the...
  4. WolfSongs 2

    My short story "The Loving and Keeping of Wolves" is in WolfSongs 2 from WolfSinger Publications. She had studied his movements for weeks, and one mist-shrouded morning Tamsa came to the clearing where she knew he would be. He kept the wolfskin there, hidden in the brush around the clear spring. It took her a little time to find it, but she had watched him on many occasions before, studying where he dug for the folded skin and then, when he had changed back, the bundle of his clothes. She...
  5. Comets and Criminals

    "Following the Mercy Man," a dark post-apocalyptic story (as opposed to a bouncier, happier post-apocalypse) will be published in the first issue of new magazine Comets and Criminals.
  6. Beneath Ceaseless Skies x2

    "The Godslayer's Wife" appears in issue #71 of BCS. Reviewer JesterJoker writes, "In Beneath Ceaseless Skies, I read this, about a woman rescued from a goddess of death and the nightmares of the hero who saved her. It's fascinating to see the aftermath, weird suggestions of a wider world inside it, and the victory over the goddess's disturbing powers."
  7. Nevermet Press

    A shorter version of "Lord Shashensa" has been published on the Nevermet Press website. It is also available in the ebook anthology, Stories in the Ether: Issue One.
  8. Semaphore X3

    "The Sorcerer Next Door" appears in Semaphore Magazine's March 2011 issue. He didn’t look like a wizard. I knew he was, of course. I couldn’t forget. My mother attended every single meeting, every protest at the town hall, signed every petition circulating the neighborhood to keep him out of this garden in this house next door to ours, all in vain for whatever bureaucratic reason. But he didn’t look the part.
  9. Shadows Within Shadows--Static Movement

    "The Gallows Wife" has been reprinted in Static Movement's Shadows Within Shadows anthology.

  11. Beneath Ceaseless Skies x2

    "The Godslayer's Wife" has been accepted for publication in Beneath Ceaseless Skies.
  12. Crossed Genres x2

    "The Halcyon in Flight" appeared in Crossed Genres issue 27 (Tragedy). When messenger-for-hire Hethen A'Manth is sent on a mission to a rebel queen and her sorcerer, Asmadene the Halcyon, he is caught in a web of treachery and magic where no one is as they seem.
  13. Every Day Fiction x4

    "The Last Veteran" was published February 3rd at Every Day Fiction. The memorial to the fallen of the Pan-Atlantic War was a long tube of glossy, storm-gray marble. It reminded Aaron of a sewer pipe, or of the subway passages where he remembered hearing civilians had sheltered some nights when the bombers flew low overhead. He pressed the button on the arm of his wheelchair and rolled forward another inch, scanning a new column of white names in the blue light from the fluorescent bars...
