I'm bogged down in novel writing, story revisions, and garden wrangling, but I wanted to drop a quick note about my latest poem, published by the nice folks at Strange Horizons. It was inspired by the experience of watching my mother's house, the place I spent my...

The Kickstarter for If This Goes On, an anthology of political fiction, is now Live!

Contribute if you can (there are fantastic rewards and stretch goals), and share on social media. This is going to be a fantastic collection, and I'm thrilled my story will be included...

The other day it rained for the first time in over five weeks. The ground was cracked and dry, and dust clung to every surface--trees, cars, houses, people. Over the years I've come to realize that as disaster zones go, I'm far better suited to floods than drought. May...
