Folk tales, fables, and stories of the fantastic with a historical twist are my passion.
I’ve been nominated for a Prix Aurora Award for my short story When Phakack Came to Steal Papa, A Ti-Jean Story and for editing Shanghai Steam Anthology which is recommended reading in Orson Scott Card’s book Writing Fantasy & Science Fiction: How to Create Out-of-This-World Novels and Short Stories.
My independently published middle grade book Painted Problems (http://www.paintedproblems.com/) is read in schools. Painted Problems is about the impact graffiti has on a community and what children can do about it.
I’m a proud member of the Imaginative Fiction Writers Association (IFWA), a founding member of the blog group Fictorians, and I belong to a critique group. I have judged short story contests, been a panelist, attended seminars and workshops and presented skill sessions to writing groups. You can read my blogs on writing at www.fictiorians.com or read them on the Fictorians page on this website.
I have 5 novels looking for homes and several short stories. To learn more about my works in progress, please check out My Stories.
