In my short fiction, I long to visit strange and uncharted places, to explore how others experience their world. You’ll find links to all my stories here. Most of them are available to read for free online. If you can, please consider subscribing or donating to the wonderful magazines publishing them.

Forever the Forest

Short Story, April 2023

It is known that the Rootless are only ever leaving. Always moving on, never embracing soil long enough for connection. A life tumbled and tossed, and if it touches ours, it is only by chance, and ill chance more often than not.

Short Story, September 2020

How Bees Fly

Novelette, February 2017
