Fiction

After a multi-year hiatus while I obtained my MS and began my PhD, my fiction languished. I have recently started up again in earnest.

My story, “This Mustang, Who Speaks for Her” is published in the Spring 2012 edition of The Kudzu Review, the undergraduate literary magazine housed at Florida State University. It is also published in plainchina‘s 2013 anthology of best undergraduate writing in the United States. [plainchina]

I am currently working on several projects, at various stages of progress. Please do email me for drafts—your feedback is most welcome!

  • “The Art of Disappearing” is a short ghost story about grief, which experiments with the idea that death can make ghosts out of those left behind.
  • A novella blending a murder mystery with sci-fi elements that attempts to make vivid one of the deepest metaphysical mysteries about the self.
  • A novella-length hero’s journey into a magical world that is transubstantial with a small American town. The hero is an old garbage man who thinks he has seen it all. This story explores aging and generational change.
