My story, “The American Dream” will be available in the It Was All A Dream 2 anthology soon and I can’t wait for you all to read it. In the meantime, you can read this interview with me about the trope I used, my fears for the future, and future projects.

Check it out here:

What tropes are you tired of seeing in media and which do you think need a revival?

I have a new publication I am happy to share with you all. It’s my second publication in Nature Futures. Given the ongoing war in Ukraine, this piece is especially meaningful for me. It has gone through various title changes throughout the editing process starting off with “Where Have All the Gulags Gone” to “The Last Witness” to “Determined to Witness” and last to “Eyes on History.”

Importantly this flash isn’t all fictional. There was a nunnery that was turned into a gulag called the Sukhanovka, which is now a monastery.

I worry the horrific misery tourism I envision in my flash will come to fruition if we ever have use of this technology. I see it now with the movies people watch, the pricey excursions to see the Titanic, etc.

Read my story here and let me know what you think both of the flash and my author’s note:

This beautiful anthology Learning To Be Human will be available for purchase in the USA on February 13th here:

In the meantime you can read about what inspired my story and other stories with similar themes I love here:

Also this is a great song to get you in the mood for my story:

Would you love me if I was a worm/whale/lanternfly?

Say yes.

They came to find love but all they found was death until…

“Full of Sound and Fury” finally available for you to read. I dedicate this to all the spotted lantern flies I’ve killed in an effort to minimize the invasive species and also to my husband. I wouldn’t be able to write love if he didn’t show me how to live it.

Let me know in the comments what you think of my foray into romance.

I’ve been submitting to the Furious Fiction contests for 3 years now. I was once long-listed (for a short then published in FFM) but today my story went up on the shortlist and was actually showcased on the site!

It’s less than 500 words. Check it, and the winning stories, out here:

Mine is the 12th story down. Let me know how you think I handled the prompt!

I have a story coming out Nov 30 in Heartlines Spec I can’t wait to share with you all. It’s a fantasy “epic” told in poetic prose about a pair of lovers rediscovering each other across lifetimes through song.

We are SO close to reaching this stretch goal. Just $6 away! And if you back the kickstarter you don’t only get access to my short but to the amazing stories by Angelique Fawns. Her work is always fun to read. And this is lite-horror so stories you can enjoy with the whole family.
