I've been writing as long as I can remember, and I never intend to stop. I write speculative fiction, and I'm most at home among the underrepresented and the bizarre.

Doorways and Beginnings

PROMPT: Novel Writing Competition 2020

There is something tempting about doorways to nowhere. The three steps down from a street that stop at a bricked-up window. The sidewalk manhole no one has ever been able to open. The gap of air where two trees twist together, which, if you squinted at just the right angle, might appear to be a door. Cracks and tunnels and broken hideaways are all tempting, especially to a child. Especially to a small seven-year-old with wide eyes and unkempt hair,...

The System

PROMPT: Novel Writing Competition 2019

The sky was November blue, cold and sharp and brittle.
