Read My Story “The Greatest Victory” in Tales of the Sunrise Lands

It is said that the greatest of soldiers stands backed by every soldier in the army, and every soldier who came before.

It is said that the greatest of politicians stands backed by their entire district and their entire nation.

General Tsukushi Tada, it is said, held off an entire army with the strength of his voice alone.  But there is more to the story than that.

Tales of the Sunrise Lands is available now from Guardbridge Books.  Read my short story, “The Greatest Victory,” and seventeen others “inspired by the culture and literary traditions of Japan. From steadfast samurai and contemplative monks, to transforming animals, horrifying spirits and everyday objects come to life, these tales transport you to the magical world of the Sunrise Lands.”


Bloodlines won the Best Anthology Award at the Aurealis Awards!
(includes my story Lifeblood of the City!)

Read me! Two new anthologies out!

Dark fantasy in a rust belt noir setting. Cheerful monster hunters dealing with family problems. These two stories could not be more different – except that I wrote them both.

Another body goes missing. A cop seeks an ancient story.

It’s one thing telling your family you’re a couple. It’s another one telling them you hunt monsters.

And the supernatural creeps in to even the most mundane situations…

Read Lifeblood of the City, now in Bloodlines, and We Wish You a Merry Christmas, now in Do You Feel What I Feel. I hope you enjoy them!

Want to read anthologies featuring yours truly?

My story in Shifting Hearts, “Crossing the Line,” follows a feral-hearted woman as she deals with territoriality – and cautious affection.

“Monster Godmother,” in What Follows, is the story of an immortal fae and the humans that hate her, all struggling against an ending world.

“Company,” my story in No Place For Us, is also apocalyptic.  Sometimes the best thing to wash up in your nets is companionship.

The Amazon Links are all here.

You can find What Follows on SmashWords, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo here, or on CreateSpace here.

Even Romance is Better With Apocalypse!

No Place For Us, an anthology of post-apocalyptic romance stories, will be published on Monday 3/23/14. Keep an eye out for my story “Company” – because everything, even romance, is better at the end of the world.

Mobbing Midnight Kickstarter is Live!

Crows, crows, and more crows: Mobbing Midnight is an anthology focused on the brilliant corvid!

Crows are peppered through world mythology and folklore- sometimes serving as a sign of ill luck, other times a trickster.

From American crows to hooded and carrion crows, pied crows to jungle crows- they come in as many shapes and in as many environments as we can dream up.

And my story is going to be in there, along with stories by fourteen other awesome authors!

Tentatively titled Crow Cage, it’s an urban fantasy tale of magic and mystery, following a murder of crows that are definitely more than they seem – and possibly more than that, too.

Check it out!
