My newest scifi short story “Traditions” is now available in the January 2013 issue of Bards and Sages Quarterly.
My first ever published story is now up at Swamp Biscuits and Tea!
Yes, that’s my name on the issue’s cover. Really, it is.
I really loved writing this story, and working on it with the editors, and now I love getting to share it with everyone. Go give “It’s Not Safe Below” a read.
I picked up Among Others for a few reasons. First, it won a Hugo. Second, it’s by a woman author who I haven’t read. Give me something by McCaffrey or Le Guin or Cherryh and I’m happy.

This time, I have three different fantasy stories to share. Stick your hand in and see what you get!

Monster, Finder, Shifter by Nina Kiriki Hoffman
I started reading this story just to reset my brain while writing, and then I couldn’t stop. Sad and beautiful.
For those adverse to high levels on the cheese-o-meter, probably best for you to stop reading now.
I wrote the ceremony script for our recent wedding, and during that process, I went on a search for a good wedding reading or two. For someone equal parts bookish and nerd, this led me to such places as Neil Gaiman’s The Day the Saucers Came and my own bookshelf, which houses some great books, but nothing right for the reading.
Then, I had a thought: hey, I’m a writer, why can’t I write something?
So here it is, along with storyboards I made to enhance the good bits. I have a 2nd grade level of artistry with construction paper – no offense meant to any 2nd graders – but I like to think I’ve mastered that level in my own special way.
It’s no Neil Gaiman, but enjoy. (Spoilers! Contains TARDIS!)
