I finally, finally get to share literally the biggest news of my writing life: my short story, "The Hidden Language of Flowers," was selected for inclusion in Neon Hemlock's We're Here: The Best Queer Speculative Fiction 2021. Look at that cover. It's fucking gorgeous. And that table of contents is...wow. But the real achievement here … Continue reading Writing News!
Reading and writing wise, 2021 was a good year for me. I read a lot, wrote a lot, and got lots of short stories published—so wins all around! My overarching goal for 2022 is returning. Not a return to normal, because there is no such thing, but a return to self, joy, and freedom. This … Continue reading My 2022 Reading and Writing Goals
I can't believe it's been a month since Misspelled: Magic Gone Awry was released! I had so much fun participating in the promo events, although not quite as much fun as I had while writing "The Hidden Language of Flowers," my short story included in this wonderful anthology. I did a lot of research for … Continue reading “The Hidden Language of Flowers” Easter Eggs
Well, this has been a busy fall for me! I'm kinda participating in NaNoWriMo, in that I'm not on the website or working on a longer piece (although I have started tackling a WIP that's been on my to-write list for a hot minute—no, not Book 3 of the Satura Trilogy), but I am working … Continue reading Writing Update
I always feel so awkward stumping for my writing. Wooooooohoooooo imposter syndrome. However, I'm incredibly proud about my fiction, and the fact that ever so slowly, after many fits and starts and self doubt, my work is being published. I've been feeling incredibly grateful and overwhelmed with everything being published this fall (six short stories), … Continue reading Promo Time: Two Anthologies releasing today!
I have a new short story out! Okay, technically it's been available on Amazon (in print and ebook) form since October 1st, but "Tell the Crows I'm Home" is available for free on Metaphorosis Magazine's website. "Tell the Crows I'm Home" is one of the most intensely personal short stories I've ever written, although I … Continue reading Short Story Release! Moody, Queer, Softly Dystopian and Free!

I have great news! Not one, but two of my short stories are out this month! After over a year of having absolutely nothing accepted by literally anyone in 2020 (okay, so I did have two things published—my novella, Evie and the Pack-Horse Librarians and my debut novel, That Distant Dream, but those were both … Continue reading Writing Update: Two New Short Stories Out Now!
Among other things, May is National Recommitment Month, and while I don't make new year's resolutions, I do want to recommit to my writing, because I feel like I've been kinda slumpy in the past couple months (although I've written a lot this year and I need to keep reminding myself that). I've wanted to … Continue reading Writing Update!
My debut novel, That Distant Dream has been out in the world for over two months! I wrote and book and it's published! It's hard to capture my thoughts and feelings, because so much went into creating it, from the writing process to the editing to finally finding a home for it with NineStar Press … Continue reading My Debut Novel: That Distant Dream
