My Stories So Far


I've been writing seriously for publication for more than a few years now, and so far my rejection pile has grown quite thick, totaling at last count, 500+ rejections. But it isn't all form slips with a coffee stained manuscript: a few folks have actually liked my stuff enough to publish it. Sometimes they even pay me! (Can you believe it? I have trouble sometimes.) The following is a list of my publications to date, including fiction, poetry, and forthcoming material. Alternatively, there's also an alphabetical listing.
