One More Fairy Tale

My tale of sound, stories, and motherly love, “One More Fairy Tale,” is now out in Cossmass Infinities.

Once upon a time, I was fitted with hearing aids after a year of silence. I still remember when the aids were turned on — like a baseball bat whacking sounds against my brain, painfully, repeatedly.

Once upon a time, I was a deaf girl in a hearing school, dreaming of slipping through walls into other worlds without sound.

Once upon a time, I became a mother and wanted to give my children the world.

I put all those tales together to form “One More Fairy Tale.”

Stay Tuned …

Two stories will be coming out this July:

One More Fairy Tale, in Cossmass Infinities
A tale of motherhood and sound and different worlds. A very personal story for me, and it means so much to be able to share it with the world.

The Moon Spider, in Bards and Sages Quarterly
I had a lot of fun crafting this tale of spiders and an angry moon.

Also, The Hole in the Storm was recently accepted by Daily Science Fiction and will be appearing in that publication sometime in the future!

The Disappearing Cat Trick

Tanya’s parents refused to let her get a cat.


No matter how many times Tanya argued that the planet’s environment was fully approved for cats, or that cats had already made their home among the rocks and dust and blue bamboo plants of Odin III, they wouldn’t budge. 

Read more in my short story, “The Disappearing Cat Trick,” part of the Odin Chronicles and now appearing in Page and Spine Magazine!

Two New Stories to Share!

It’s been a busy month, and I have two stories to share:

“With a Palette of Rock and Magma,” in Factor Four Magazine.

The planet couldn’t suppress the shiver of excitement rippling over its surface when a transport landed in a ring of fire and smoke. Its first visitors! How air-light their steps, so miniscule and fragile.

There’s also my story, “A Dance in the Dying Light,” now out in the Flame Tree Fiction Newsletter. Three mining spaceships must try and escape the supernova of a dying star… but can they make it?
