Publication Alert: ALCHEMY Anthology

Leave a comment

I’m excited to announce that my story “Night Terrors” placed 8th in the TL;DR Press1,000 Word Herd” Flash Fiction contest. It will be published next month (July 2021) in the “ALCHEMY” Anthology. Proceeds benefit the World Literacy Foundation.

This was TL;DR’s second annual “1KWH” competition, and I’m thrilled to be included along with two dozen other terrific writers, including some of my writing buddies like MM Schreier, Ai Jiang, Charlie Rogers, and Diana Brown!

Women on Writing Finals!

Leave a comment

My CNF (creative nonfiction) essay “Eyeworms” has made it into the WOW (Women on Writing) finals– that is, it’s one of 44 pieces that will now move on to final judging. There will be a top ten (first through third place, plus seven runners-up), and ten honorable mentions. So I have slightly less than a 50-50 chance here. Hold good thoughts!

Sweet Surprises

One of the things you need as a writer is – more writers! Like any endeavor, it helps to be surrounded by people who understand the challenges, with whom you can exchange tips and commiseration. But writer-friends are even better than the average professional network, because they also bring you beautiful stories!

We read one another’s work – and sometimes, we “beta read” (read it before it’s complete) to help a fellow writer fine-tune their tale. I had the chance to read some of writer-friend Diana Brown‘s stories just before they were published, and I enjoyed them – so when they were released, she sent me a copy of the book! I’m looking forward to reading the other authors in Iron Faerie Publishing‘s Arcane Anthology!

I’m beyond excited to have “The Vigil,” an excerpt from my current work-in-progress, published today in Halfway Down the Stairs’s quarterly, “Love & War.” The other stories in this issue are truly fabulous, and I’m really humbled to have my work find a home among such talented company! Go take a look!

Publication Alert: Percy S and the Artichoke King

It’s always exciting to share that some of my work will be published. But I have to say, there’s an extra “zing!” to the announcement that “Percy S and the Artichoke King” has found a home in Red Penguin’s “Once Upon A Time” Anthology. Check out this gorgeous book trailer!

Publication Alert: Feeding the Flock Anthology

Leave a comment

One of my New Year’s resolutions was to drum up some courage and start submitting my work for publication. “Nothing That is Not There,” an excerpt from my work in progress, was the first story I submitted anywhere this year–and it was accepted! The submission required an accompanying recipe and photo along with the story (because Feeding the Flock is a cookbook!), so I got to make a batch of gołąbki (Polish stuffed cabbage) just so I could take pictures of it!

NYCM Flash Fiction R1C2

For Challenge Two of the first round, I’m still in Group 34. New prompts: Romance, a lecture hall, and a cookie jar. We had 48 hours to come up with a 1000-word (max) story in response to those.


Speaking in Starts Distractedly

A young woman intent on impressing her famous Shakespeare professor discovers that her future is actually behind her.


I’m pretty happy with this story–I had fun writing it because the lecture hall, the professor, and even the paper (also titled “Speaking in Starts Distractedly”) are all real, even though everything about the rest of the story is total fiction. Writing this one took me on a fun romp down Memory Lane.
