“The Peace of Completion and Release” is now available! 

Hi all!

My flash fiction story, “The Peace of Completion and Release” is available at Twisted Sister Literary here. This one is very creepy and potentially triggery, so please read at your own risk.

Thanks again for all of your love and support on this incredibly packed and amazing week!

Post-Reading Round Up

Hello all!

On Wednesday, September 24th, I participated in a reading for The NYU Village Writers Group at the Jefferson Market Branch of the New York Public Library.

I had a great time being around other artists and the members of my family and friends who were able to make it on a Wednesday evening after work to listen to us read. There was a great turnout and I enjoyed the selection of fiction and poetry from the many talented writers involved.

I have been asked by those who were unable to attend, for a video of my reading. I have two, actually. One has good picture quality and questionable sound. The other has the opposite problem. So, I’m going to post them both here for your viewing (maybe) pleasure.

I hope you enjoy listening to “Tunneling”. The story holds a very important place in my heart.

I hope you enjoy!

“Tunneling” to be Published!

Hello again!

In what could possibly make this the best writing week ever, today I was notified that “Tunneling,” the flash fiction piece I discussed writing on the train in the blog post “Reject” was accepted for publication.  This news came just one day after I learned that my short story “One Percent” was accepted for publication by another literary magazine.  Oddly enough, in the blog post mentioned above, “One Percent” was the story that was rejected, that led to me writing “Tunneling” on the train.  What a strange coincidence!

Details on both publications will follow once I know more.  Thanks, once again, for being the absolute best support system a writer chick could ask for.  I mean that from the bottom of my heart!
