Melancholy Cure Prescription Strength

decomP magazinE has published my short story "Melancholy Cure Prescription Strength".

It starts something like this...

The screwdriver fails to disengage the airbag, so Anders drives through the old neighborhood to his childhood home and plows into the apple tree in the front yard. His teeth rattle like dice and draw blood, but his head throbs no more, no less from the impact.

Fair warning: it's not a lullaby.

Grandparents Heart Babysitting

NANO's Volume 6 Number 1 features my latest piece of flash fiction, "Grandparents Heart Babysitting". Huge thanks to the editors - certainly for the inclusion, but also, and perhaps more importantly, for their attention to detail, their push to get every word just right.

If you like things to read, short things, stories that move you and leave you wanting more, fictional flings, order your copy here.

Outside of Cars

Read my short story "Outside of Cars" in Corium Magazine's Issue 19.
I mean, if you want.
Just so you know what you're getting yourself into, here's a bit of my correspondence with the editor.
"Your story made me very uncomfortable, which means it made me feel something, which is what we look for at Corium. As long as it's well-written, of course! And your story is, so I am happy to publish it."
Results will more than likely vary.
