Here’s a sampling of my short fiction. I’ve had more than thirty published in various anthologies for Cleis Press, Stupid Fish Productions and others. These are a few of my shorter, odder favorites.
“Looking Glass” in Cosmo UK. July 24th, 2017.
“Should He Stay or Should He Go” in Bust Magazine October / November 2015.
“Advice for Living in M.C. Escher’s House” in Queen Mob’s Tea House. Posting March 1, 2017.
“Lunch with Zelda” in Queen Mob’s Tea House, Sept. 7, 2016.
The pieces in this menu are not what you might call “proper” stories. They are character sketches – portraits of characters who don’t yet have a story.
When this happens, I create a snapshot of the character. I try to make the portrait as detailed and full as I can. I want to get attached. Some of these characters end up in stories of their own while others take on tertiary roles elsewhere. What they all have in common is that I liked them, and didn’t want to let them recede quietly back into the storehouse of my mind.
