So I spent the weekend at the TweensRead book festival in Houston, which was wonderful and amazing, and I found myself having some thoughts. First of all, if you were still of a mind to question the need for many kids to have books about people like them, this would dropkick it from anyone with […]
A new short story–or, anyway, new if you’re not a subscriber–now available for free on Apex Magazine! Razorback It’s based on an old Southern folktale with a talking hog, and you know I couldn’t pass that up.
I have a new story up at Uncanny Magazine! http://uncannymagazine.com/article/wooden-feathers/ Fair warning, it has some sad bits to go with the weird bits. It is about duck decoys, sort of. If you like it, there’s a lot of cool stuff at Uncanny Magazine, all worth reading.

So, without further ado, here’s the stuff I’ve written this year that might qualify for something! Flash Fiction: […]
My short story in the Women Destroy Fantasy collection is available to read on-line! The Dryad’s Shoe If you enjoy it, please consider buying either the e-book or print volume from Fantasy Magazine of the whole issue–it is some super cool stuff. And can I just say how awesome it is to have been involved […]
Coming in November, an honest-to-god novel! This is another fairy-tale retelling, best known to long-time blog readers as “The One With The Hedgehog.” (Seriously considered calling it that, but it’s a pretty weird dark story, so I decided against it.
