“The Coven of Dead Girls”

So happy that my haunted house story about a very angry ghost and her coven has found a home!

“The Coven of Dead Girls” will come out at Pseudopod this year!

“At night, you hear things. Creaking, moaning floorboards. A disturbance in the air. You blame it on the house settling, as if houses like this every really settle. As if they could.”

End of the Year

2018 is the first year I’ve tried to sell my writing. My year end tally is six stories sold.

Two long listed submissions are pending at pro markets.

Five others are out making rounds.

I’m working on a post apocalyptic tale that will end up being a novella or a novel.

Two more short stories are brewing.

I will also be attending the FUTURESCAPES writing workshop in April!

It’s gonna be a big year!

2018 Award Eligible Stories

Hello!

I only have two stories I’m going to list for awards considerations. Both were reviewed by Maria Haskins on short fiction roundups.

“The Girl Who Ate Galaxies” was published at Syntax & Salt and it received so much positive feedback from other writers and readers.

It’s about a girl who has experienced pain, who feels unloved and invisible, developing an insatiable hunger, and devouring the world.

“All the Colors I Cannot See” was published at Metaphorosis in August.

It’s narrated by Grace, about the possession of her sister by a very bad man. It’s about trauma and love and how even when you try to fix things, there are things that cannot be repaired.
