A couple days later than I was intending to make this, but it is here. Anywho, in a move that should surprise exactly no one, I'm taking the blog on hiatus until at least January 1, 2023. The reasons are myriad and not super complex, but I've been having less fun in this space and … Continue reading September 2022 Wrap-Up
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!
“The Hidden Language of Flowers” Easter Eggs
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
Short Story Release! Moody, Queer, Softly Dystopian and Free!
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!

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!
Today is My Book’s Debut!
Folks, I am so excited about today! That Distant Dream releases from NineStar Press, and it's just—there are no words. This book has been in the works for ten years (which is why I'm struggling with the sequel), and after years of writer's block, writing, revisions and anxiety, it's seeing people for the second time! … Continue reading Today is My Book’s Debut!
ARCs Available! An LGBTQIA+ Fantasy Novella
Evie and the Pack-Horse Librarians Hi everyone! I wrote a book! Okay, it's a novella, but it's a cozy fantasy about a young copy editor who gets exiled to the mountains to become a pack-horse librarian. While this is set in the world of Arsibelle, I drew a lot of inspiration from the real pack-horse … Continue reading ARCs Available! An LGBTQIA+ Fantasy Novella
Writerly Wednesday: A Bit About Me
This is not going to be a frequent weekly post, since I'm not a frequent writer! But in 2020 I want to do better, and I want to keep track of what I'm writing a bit more and actually finish projects. Plus, I have to write a sequel for a book releasing sometime in June-July...and … Continue reading Writerly Wednesday: A Bit About Me
