My story Silly Jilly has been accepted into Apex Magazine’s Strange Libations: Dark Cocktails, an anthology of stories told via drink recipes. Silly Jilly is a bitter cocktail with a sweet finish, made in memory of a little girl lost.
My slasher story No Signal has been accepted into Dead Heat: An Anthology of Summer Horror by Crimson Pinnacle Press. It’s a twist on the common trope of someone in the woods trying to call for help, only to realize that, “There’s no signal out here!”
My folklore-based horror story Those Who Turn From God has been accepted into the 2023 Dragon Gems anthology by Water Dragon Publishing. The story is based on a real grave in the Mount Holly Cemetery in New Jersey, where you’ll find an eerie phrase carved into stone: “Thus is the fate of those who turn from God.” In the woods nearby is the Witch’s Well, where an alleged witch was hanged and then thrown down the well. Those Who Turn From God combines the two legends into a story about what happens when the witches in the well return to get their revenge.
My sci-fi horror drabble What It Feels Like to Die has been accepted by Martian Magazine. When you wake up in a Rejuvenator, you don’t remember anything about how you died … even if someone killed you.
