My Short Stories

Here are links to my published short stories, as well as links to short fiction I published on my blog. Feel free to click the links, read the stories, leave a comment, or whatever. I hope you enjoy.

If you’re tempted to try some of my short stories, but are a little spooked by the warnings, then this blog post by a writing colleague will give you an idea of what to expect. Not all the stories are feminist horror; some are more like very dark and twisted humor.

Have fun! Heh, heh, heh.

    I read Furbaby. It was good, but as you mentioned it was the cuter side of horror. I have no horror writing experience and probably couldn’t do it. So it seemed compelling to me 😀
