Air and Nothingness Press published The Librarian December 15, 2022. My story, “Animatra,” is one I’m particularly proud of, featuring living tattoos, mysterious men, and hope for a new start. The Librarian is available in limited quantities from Air and Nothingness Press.
“The Gift of Dreams”
I wrote a retelling of “The Gift of the Magi” that was accepted for publication by If There’s Anyone Left. It always bothered me that the wife’s sacrifice was so temporary, however culturally significant, while the husband’s was more permanent. I tried to imagine a more equitable exchange. I’m not sure I succeeded with “The Gift of Dreams,” as I can easily see the argument that one sacrifice is slightly more extreme than the other, but I will happily debate the emotional balance on the other side, regardless of which you take, should that interest you. It was released in December and is available on Amazon.

“Tala’s Tea Time”
Air and Nothingness Press released Spirit Machine in April. I’m so excited to be a part of it! This was my very first sale, the one that made me a “published author.” It is available in limited quantities from Air and Nothingness Press.
