I have been honored to see three pieces published this year! They’re eligible for awards in this nomination season, so if you enjoyed any or all, I would appreciate your vote!!
“Drowned Prison” (Galaxy’s Edge, January 2021) – When a series of unexplained murders arises among the inmates of Kardag Prison, the search for answers brings a warden and a master painter into questions about redemption, healing, and the price of war.
“Recollection” (Analog, March 2021) – A government worker sent to study yet another desert town on the brink of collapse finds that locked and forgotten memories may hold secrets even more precious than a glimpse of a beautiful world now lost forever.
“First Leaf” (FIYAH, December 2021) – A feminist fairy tale involving a magical fig tree and its gift of invincibility that brings together two women on a quest that requires bravery and defiance of societal expectations.
