Look at this beautiful cover!
Available for preorder in E-book and paperback at Ghost Orchid Press.
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.

Honored to announce the inclusion of my story ‘Wolf’s Bane’ in this lovely anthology. I wrote this twisted tale in one of Storied Imaginarium‘s wonderful fairy tale courses. Inspired by Little Red Riding Hood and the color red module, I discovered a wolf woman named Terra who had a story to tell.
All thirty of the included tales will take you on a journey through non-human eyes.
“Stories take us beyond the bounds of our own lives—into new worlds and new situations. Perhaps most importantly, they invite us into new minds. Through the eyes of the characters we temporarily become, we not only live other lives, but discover new ways of looking at our own. Speculative fiction takes us a step farther—beyond the bounds of humanity, itself.
In Through Other Eyes, the first All Worlds Wayfarer anthology, immerse yourself in 30 unique stories featuring non-human protagonists, from aliens to dragons and monsters to mythical beings. Become someone—and something—else.” All Worlds Wayfarer
