“If You See Green, Scream” Published in Zetetic

“If anyone asks,” Jason says, “tell them we’re fine.” But we’re not fine. The words never escape your lips.  You swallow them and they sit heavy in your stomach like a wad of over-chewed gum.

“Your Body, By Default” Published in Fireside Fiction, Issue 35

(Artwork by Galen Dara) That gorgeous illustration right there is a dream come true for me. I’ve been a fan of Galen Dara‘s art for some time now. Her work is so gorgeous, so colorful and magical. I hardly dared to hope she’d ever illustrate one of my stories. And then Fireside Fiction bought my… Continue reading “Your Body, By Default” Published in Fireside Fiction, Issue 35
