Books I’ve written and contributed in are on Amazon and anywhere else books are sold–wait, are books sold anywhere else anymore? You can keep track of my writerly activities on Twitter and Facebook – click the big “T” or “F” for the details. I’m on Goodreads too, so you can see what I’m reading.
Around the Blogosphere
I guest blog occasionally, and have recently been featured on The Mary Sue, the Nexus of Pop Culture. How did I achieve this lauded feat? Sometimes I’m a huge nerd (and have many Han Solo feelings), and sometimes I write about it.
Four Corners, a collection of four distinct and varied short stories that take place on the American west and southwest will be released in 2017–okay, probably early 2018.
I curated and wrote for this anthology of fiction and art inspired by the librarians of New Orleans who, post-Katrina, were struggling to put their libraries and lives back together. Writers and artists worldwide donated works for this anthology which benefits Rebuild New Orleans Public Library.
It Happened in the Green Room: a Collection of Stories Alas, this varied collection of yarns of love, lust, loss, laughter, and life is out of print. But good news, my contribution, “Nobody Comes Home,” will be included (new and improved!) in the short story collection coming out this year.
OUTSIDE IN 2 is a collection of 125 original reviews, one for every story from Rose to Last Christmas. But as the jacket says: Provocative, engrossing, hilarious and utterly Gonzo. These aren’t your father’s reviews.
My contribution? I got to turn the Doctor into Mike Hammer for the 8th series episode “Time Heist.” It was great fun.
A Galaxy Far Far Away tours all of the best parts of fandom, from books to video games, to epic toys depicting battle scenes and everything in between. This is where I, and author A.J. O’Connell‘s essay “I Never Wanted to be Princess Leia: What Han Solo Taught Two Women About Gender and Sexuality” that was featured at The Mary Sue was originally published.
Deep Waters: Vol. 2 A journal of short fiction from Golden Fleece Press. My story “Blistered Fingers and Broken Strings” is included. It is about Jake who comes back to NYC after his dream of being a rock and roll star fizzled and burned out. He has given up on life and music, instead living in the past where he knew who he was with his soulmate and band mate Drew at his side. It’s a faceless musician strumming his guitar in Jake’s subway stop that finally wakes Jake into the part of music that kept him alive. Will he ever be able to recapture that feeling, that life? Will he ever find Drew?
