Digital versions and preorders of Dark Matter Magazine Issue 009 are available now!

I am so excited for this release. It includes my story, “The Ground Shook”. This is one of my favorites. Meera arrived on the page and insisted her story be written. She’s determined to bring back her daddy, no matter what it takes or what might be happening in the world around her. Meera’s story is a dark, creepy, and emotional one, but not without love and hope.

A sample of Issue 009 is available here: https://darkmattermagazine.com/issues/issue-009/

Honored to share a table of contents with these amazing writers, Noah Codega, Andrew Sullivan, R.L Meza, Monte Lin, Rich Larson, Ai Jiang, Mark Joslyn, Warren Benedetto, Alex Woodroe, and Christi Nogle. As well as, incredible artists Asher, The Art District’86 and cover artist artofolly. Art features and editorials by Rob Carroll are always fantastic. And, there’s an author interview with Anne Heltzel by Jena Brown and upcoming submission news by Anna Madden. Dark Matter Magazine is one of the best out there, and it’s exciting to watch the press grow.

Under Her Skin: A Women In Horror Poetry Collection, Volume I

There’s been much buzz about this one and rightly so. I may be a bit biased as I am honored to have three poems, “Intimate Communion”, “Molting”, and “Zombification”, in this amazing collection, but the TOC, the sneak peeks, and the spotlights have been spectacular.

This collection edited by Lindy Ryan and Toni Miller with incredible cover art by Lynne Hansen, a foreword by Linda D. Addison and illustrations by Marge Simon releases April 2022.

Until then, check out these spotlights and reviews:
