Speculative fiction awards season is upon us. I’d be honored if you consider one of my stories for any of your ballots if you can nominate. Otherwise, I’m more than grateful if you take some time to read them and recommend them to anyone who might like them.

Embroidery of a Bird’s Heart    |    Strange Horizons, March 2022    |    Fantasy, Magical Realism    |    3785 words

“[…] a narrator is visited by her dead grandmother, experiencing the thin boundary between the land of the living and the land of the dead. The piece provides a sharp and emotional journey for the narrator and for the reader, focusing on the ways that death can be a change rather than an end­ing, though that doesn’t always make things any easier to face or cope with.” – Charles Payseur for Locus

She Calls    |    Apparition Lit, January 2022    |    Dark Fantasy    |    3000 words

“A young woman in Mexico is enthralled by a green-haired girl with intense black eyes, who may be an incarnation of Chalchiuhtlicue, a water goddess. The narrator has a strange relationship with water, having almost drowned as a child, and that combination of desire and fear permeates the narrative.” – Karen Burnham for Locus

Thank you so much for reading! 😸
