I'm always at work on fiction of varying length. Some have already found their place in the world; many others are still looking. I'll post news and links here as they become available.
"This Is Not Who We Are" has been long listed for Reflex Fiction's inaugural competition. Favorites and long-listed stories will be published daily now until June 28, 29, and 30, when the 3rd, 2nd, and 1st place winners will be published, respectively. Be sure to keep checking their site!
"Tarantella" made the June 2016 Bath Flash Fiction Award short list, judged by Michelle Elvy. It will be available in their yearly print and digital anthology sometime around January 2017.
"White Buffalo Woman" appears in Issue 52 of Smokelong Quarterly. It was selected by a creative writing class taught by Wade Geary and Huan Hsu at Amsterdam University College in the Netherlands; I was fortunate enough to later Skype with that class about the creative writing process in general and "White Buffalo Woman" in particular. Key points taken from that Skype interview were polished and published in interview format at Smokelong Quarterly.
"The Story of How I Broke" appears in Issue 7 of Wyvern Lit and is a variation (with a fun, new POV) on the very first short story I ever published, "Mother's Prayer" (see below).
"The Waiting" appears in FlashFlood's 2015 anthology. It is the first flash fiction piece I ever wrote and the first publication credit I received after a long nine-year period. It was the trickle that led to a rush of publication credits between June 2015 and June 2016.
"Modern Day Pharisee" appears in Issue 11 of Alligator Juniper, which was published in 2006. It is the second of two published stories I wrote as an undergrad, and I am grateful to them for recognizing an early talent and to my professor at the time, Imad Rahman, for encouraging me to submit there.
"Mother's Prayer" appears in a double issue of Windhover, volumes 9 and 10. It was one of the very earliest pieces of fiction I wrote as an undergrad, under the tutelage of Susan Jackson Rodgers. Though I doubt she remembers it, Antonya Nelson also read a draft of this story during her visit to Kansas State University in 2004; sitting with her to discuss it is a definite highlight of my writing career.
