These include works offered by my publishing imprint, Phoenix Flight Press, as well as tales published in trade anthologies. All of them are speculative fiction, usually fantasy.
Check back from time to time–I’ve also written eight novels, and I submit to the occasional anthology, so this section will be expanding on a regular basis.
I’ve blogged quite a few of these, and they’re mostly fantasy. However, I also offer ghost stories, memoirs, and even a contemporary for your reading pleasure.
There’s nothing quite like taking in a whole story in just a few minutes. I hope you have as much fun reading these tales as I did writing them.
Words can be elegant, beautiful, and sometimes frustrating, and they’re always necessary to convey meaning in print.

Perhaps like me, you’ve discovered that like it or not, social media is part of your chosen career.

Whatever your reasons, I have some tips here.
This one’s self-explanatory.
I won’t post anything that I don’t like, so nobody has to worry about me blasting their book publicly. That said, I don’t read horror or erotica at all, and I’m not the best choice for steamy romance. I like my mysteries cozy, not graphic, and I generally read historical and fantasy.
Currently, I’m only accepting review requests from folks I’ve met blogging or on Absolute Write.
Writers have a love of words in common, but how they conjure their stories varies widely.
