“An Engagement of Long Standing” in Tangle and Fen from Crone Girls Press published September 28th, 2023. Available in Ebook and Paperback form. 

“The silver and black cracker snapped like a gunshot. Christian and Evalyn Allyson staggered back in a cloud of red foil confetti.

Well don’t keep us in suspense, read the motto!’ shrieked somebody who thought she was the life and soul of the party. Jennifer sighed. Pretty soon, she’d be asked to join in the fun of the Salvation Shelter (Greater Wainscotting District) Staff Party. Christian donned his lime-green paper crown and unfurled the motto while Evalyn tucked the prize, a tin penny-whistle, into her pocket.

What has blue lips and a green dress? A lost girl in the cold…’ Christian said, his words trailing off into nothing. Evalyn stiffened and took the paper from his unresisting hand. This was apparently the kind with a Motto and an Inspirational Saying. Evalyn finished her glass before reading ‘Whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’ There was nothing ominous about Matthew 25:45 to Jennifer’s mind, but Evalyn read it like an overdraft notice.”

“A Cat’s Duty” in Proton Reader Issue 2

“Tofurky watched the sanitaphage scurry along the couch. His legs were tight with tension, nose and ears twitching. The smoke-smelling Panic Attack seemed completely oblivious to his presence, its four wings folded back over the baby-like face on its back, stingers lowered. The root-like antennae coming from its eyeless head waved in wide, slow arcs, while the bell-shaped mouth sucked at the air. “

This person had one empty socket and one hollow filled by a nagaweed seedling, its little diamond-shaped bud trailing down like a purple teardrop…”
