    Billy rolled over and hit snooze. His dog, Arlo, jumped on the bed, licked his face with reckless abandon, urging him out of bed. He playfully swatted Arlo and rubbed his head. “Enough. I know what time it is.” Outside the snow swirled into large pillowy drifts. Maybe school would be canceled today? He gathered his winter gear and proceeded to get dressed as Arlo’s tail waved in anticipation. He gazed at his dog, “I’m hurrying.”
  • Roadkill Surprise in The Horror Zine Magazine Summer 2021 Paperback
    “A savage cry cut through the forest. Animals of all sizes stood at rapt attention. Minutes passed. Ears twitched and nostrils flared. A small creature broke from the snowy undergrowth and dashed towards freedom, zigzagging around tree trunks and diving through thickets of thorns, employing whatever acrobatics it could to keep death at bay. A darkness blacker than the shadows followed. Rage built inside. The hunger grew. The tiny morsel wouldn’t sedate its appetite. The creature desired flesh—tender and sweet, and blood, rich and warm.”
  • Sins of the Mother
    All Isabelle wants is a history. She invents one, only to learn the story she’s writing is real. The demons from her mothers past want her soul, for the darkness inside to be set free, for the doors between realities to be opened. The war for Isabelle’s soul has begun.
