I didn’t know it was possible to have as much fun with an interview as I did writing the book! Myna Chang and I talked the process of putting together Afterglow, the past and future of speculative fiction, research, influences, and a lot more. Huge thanks to Myna and Uncharted!
Really excited to share this single-sentence CNF about enby-ness & Velvet Goldmine & self-love & the struggle that is being who you want to be. Huge thanks to Drunk Monkeys for picking this up. Recommend pairing this w/ 2HB (The Venus in Furs version).
The first blurb for Afterglow is in, and ngl: reading this made me cry. If only little kid me who was obsessed with scifi and spec fic could see this… Wow.
I had the absolute pleasure of sitting down recently to talk with Diane Gottlieb about The Brother We Share, and I’m very excited (and still a little stunned) to share that PRISM international picked up the interview. I want to give a huge thanks to Diane and PRISM, and to you for reading!

Thrilled to share that AFTERGLOW has been picked up by Alien Buddha Press!! I was re-reading Riddley Walker, my favorite speculative fiction novel, when the email came in. I’ve wanted to publish a spec fic book since I was a kid, so this is a dream come true. It made me cry. 😊
I finished Afterglow today! I’m so excited to talk with Electric Sheep SF about this in early March. Now to assemble, edit, and send this out! I also want to thank the mags that saw something in this wild spec fic book and published (or will soon publish) pieces from Afterglow. Sledgehammer Lit, Bullshit Lit, Orca Literary, Cult of Clio, Idle Ink, Literary Canteen, and Antipodean SF: thank you so, so much. 😊❤️
Third bit of news today! I’m so excited and honored that Internet Void started the new year with my work. Here’s a CNF about the grandpa I never got to meet, about our shared love of The Twilight Zone and us both being dreamers and grief that you can have for someone you never knew. 💙
Second bit of news today: This is the first Afterglow story I wrote, a piece on nostalgia & memory & sickness & a shopping mall from the beforetimes where rain & vines now get through the broken skylight. Hope you enjoy this spec fic!
