I’m proud to say that I’ve been published in a variety of places and interviewed in a few podcasts. This is a list of the most recent things I’ve produced.
Short Stories and Fiction
Three small independent Presses have joined forces to publish Mirrors Reflecting Shadows: an anthology to support the Trevor Project. Roi Fainéant Press, Outcast Press, and Anxiety Press wanted to find “a smorgasbord” of short stories across all genres for this charity anthology. The 30 original stories aren’t all LGBTQ+ in content or context (though my story, “Viven’s Heir,” is), and they run the gamut from literary to fairy tale.
In Autonomous Press’s Spoon Knife 7: Transitions, I have a weird little short story called “Don’t Eat the Canapes”. It’s about what happens when you seek out gods and paradoxes.
Published in March 2023, this anthology of 19 stories edited by Nick Walker and Mike Jung includes “Tales of transition and initiation, of life-changing encounters and moments of choice, of people who stumble into unexpected love or weird magic or designer lawn scams.”
My dieselpunk retelling of the fairy tale “Rapunzel” was included in an anthology edited by Rhonda Parrish and published by World Weaver Press in 2019. My short story appears alongside 13 others in Grimm, Grit, and Gasoline: Dieselpunk & Decopunk Fairy Tales.
The “punked up fairy tales” collection continues with other eras and options of aesthetics. This was one of the first fairy tale retellings I have written, and I contributed a blog post to the World Weaver Press blog about my writing and rewriting process.
In 2021, I wrote a short story called “Special Interest” which appears in the Volume Blue edition of Dark Cheer: Cryptids Emerging published by Improbable Press.
The editor, Atlin Merrick, did an amazing job of curating tales that are creepy and spooky, but that always deliver a satisfying (if not happy) ending. It was as if I were reading a horror equivalent of a cozy mystery. I trusted Atlin’s choice completely and devoured both the Blue and Silver volumes through the cold winter.
My high fantasy short story “The Old One” appeared in Issue 9 of Three Crows Magazine in the Spring of 2021.
This story is an action-adventure with unique heroes. I’ve written a number of stories in the world where this was based, bit this was the first to find a home.
Finally, my retelling of the Ariadne myth, “Bull Headed” was published in the Labyrinths issue of Coffin Bell Journal. It’s available for free online.
In the Spring 2023 issue of Parabola magazine, I have a book review published of Robert Macfarlane’s Underland. Essentially, I explore this travel memoir as a modern re-envisioning of the Underworld archetypes. Macfarlane manages to include a large number of the symbols that we have long associated with the Underworld in beautiful prose.
