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.

Including my story “Worm Bagging” alongside fiction, poetry, and articles from some of my favorite writers.
“Worm Bagging” is a creepy epistolary story of exploration and discovery in the isolated cave system of Imawari Yeuta. Read if you dare.
Three of my poems are in this gorgeous anthology:
“Molting” – Releasing past selves and beliefs.
“Intimate Communion” – A visceral view of intimacy.
“Zombification” – Interconnection.
Available in eBook and paperback:
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.
