April and May 2012 brought
four story acceptances--hurrah! Those stories will
be out later in 2012 in
Richmond Macabre II;
The Old, Weird South;
You, Me, & a Bit of We; and
Loco-Thology, Vol. 2.
My most recent published story is a dark tale of an evening on the
job as a private investigator, titled "Right Where She Wants
Him." Did I mention it's dark? (You've been warned.) This
story is in the really marvelous journal
Needle: A Magazine of Noir.
My first vampire story was released last October in
This rather bloody story, "Hunting Joey Banks,"
features a PI searching for a client who's been abducted by bad guys.
"Cleaning Fish" appears in
Crimes: They Had it Comin'. I like to describe it as a story
about the healing power of murder. :-)
Chesapeake Crimes III contains my story "It Tore the
Laugh from My Throat," and features a photo I took on
Chincoteage in Virginia on the front cover.
My short story "Still, Life" won second prize in the 2007 Style Weekly fiction contest.
My writing has also appeared in Neo, The Washington Free Press, and Gaia, and I've written
scintillating certification exam prep materials for New Riders
