“Kissing My Grandmother at Her Funeral” new poem in Words & Whispers Literary Journal
Thrilled to have my poem included in the current issue of Words & Whispers alongside a talented group of poets and fiction writers.

“Greyhound” new flash fiction story in Club Plum Literary Journal
Thank you to Club Plum Literary Journal for including my story “Greyhound” in their current issue.

The link below includes a soundtrack from Calpurnia, also entitled “Greyhound.” Very cool.
