I'm proud to be recipient of this year's fiction award from the lovely journal Subnivean. The judge was Gish Jen. Read the story (R-rated!) here.

I also have new work in The Village Sun, The Hudson Review, Literary Mama, The Prose Poem, LitHub and The Artisanal Writer.

My poem "Frying Marbles with My Father" was named one of four honorable mentions for the 2023 Robinson Jeffers Award, complete with prize money. Another poem, "Possessing Pronouns," was a finalist for the 2023 Wergle Flomp Humor Poetry Contest. I was also one of nine finalists (out of 1,800 entries) for the Jack Grapes Poetry Prize sponsored by Cultural Daily. I made the Top Ten for the Frontier New Voices contest, and have been nominated for a Pushcart Prize the last four years running. And in a big surprise, my short story "For Betsy's Britches" made it to the top 100 in LeVar Burton's speculative fiction contest.

Read a few additional poems here: Porlock, The New York Quarterly, The Sun, The Hudson Review, Literary Mama. One of my prose poems appeared in the international journal Expanded Field.
