Best Small Fictions 2018


I am more than stoked to announce that my story in Fictive Dream from earlier this year, Eaters of Fire, was nominated for the Best Small Fictions 2018. This is huge for me and supplies me with some much-needed validation. I’m just so thrilled.

I can’t thank Laura Black enough for this nomination. She’s the editor of Fictive Dream, and she’s so kind and professional. I’m filled with gratitude.

I’m really excited that the “One” print anthology has arrived from across the pond. This project was the brainchild of Steve Campbell, who is the editor of the magazine behind this anthology, Ellipsis Zine. He’s a true gentleman and a talented writer.

You had to go through a submission process to possibly be accepted, so I was thrilled when I saw that I made the cut with my story Tangerine. “One” was the theme, and your story had to be under 300 words. (10 out of the chosen 57 stories were longer ones selected from past stories published by Ellipsis.)

This is my first story that I’ve written with my daughter in my mind. It’s more of a children’s tale than an adult one. I ordered an extra book to give to her.

All the writers receive royalties from the sales, so if you want to buy one or twelve, you can order them here. (There’s also a digital version.)




The Crayon Moon


I’m really excited to have my story The Crayon Moon published by Marauder Literary Journal. Marauder is the brainchild of Maggie Jankuloska, a talented Australian writer. I’m grateful to her for giving my story a lovely home. Check the site out and read and/or submit.

I’m so excited to announce that my story Goop finished 3rd in the Molotov Cocktail FlashMonster contest. A huge thank you to Mary Lenoir Bond and Josh Goller for selecting my tale and for running one of the slickest, darkest lit mags out there. They run a themed flash contest quarterly. I used to enter often, but I skipped the last year or so for unknown reasons. Glad I decided to enter this one.

Plus, I won $50.00 for finishing 3rd. The coolest of beans!
