Reading with your eyes closed

I’m always keen to see my stories appear as podcasts. “Generation Gap”, originally published in Bundoran’s Aurora-nominated Lazarus Risen anthology, is no exception. It’s available now on Starshipsofa, one of the top SF audio magazines.

I’m in good company. Starshipsofa has podcast stories from such luminaries as Michael Moorcock, Joe Haldeman, Bruce Sterling, David Brin, Harry Harrison, Ted Chiang, George R. R. Martin, William Gibson, and many more.

Listen to “Generation Gap” here.

As well, I hope you’ll enjoy listening to other stories I’ve written, too. Here’s a partial list:

Potluck or lucky-in-love, you decide

Online interactive text-based games are an interesting phenomenon of the internet and I was pleased to discover Sub-Q magazine’s contributions to the field.

My first game is out now. The Vector III’s Potluck Sign-up Sheet involves a merchant spaceship crew embroiled in relationship difficulties. The crew takes extreme action–including holding a potluck.

Play the game for free, leave a comment, and support Sub-Q by subscription or Patreon as you are able.

Young Explorer’s Adventure Guide now out!

Set your coordinates for adventure in Volume Five of the Young Explorer’s Adventure Guide! This anthology of 24 stories is for ages 9 to 14 but can be enjoyed by anyone who likes reading about smart, creative, and diverse kids.

My second appearance in this anthology series (my first was in Volume Four) involves a girl tasked with babysitting an annoying little brother on a spaceship. If it weren’t for the aliens and life-threatening disaster, it might have been a boring day!

Find the Young Explorer’s Adventure Guide at Amazon, Kobo, Barnes and Noble, or your favorite bookstore.

Easy Peasy


Common Deer Press, publishes both novels and short fiction. My story, “Easy Peasy”, came out in their Short Tails segment last month. The story originated from my memories of a rather unique dish that my mother used to serve for dinner. The recipe is included in the piece.

Geri loves two things: computational linguistics and her best friend back on the Moon. When she gets assigned sociology homework on Earth, she finds she has a lot to learn about heritage, diversity, and the basis of language itself.

Find “Easy Peasy” at the handy link here and find the ingredients for the dish at your local grocery store. Enjoy!

Constellary Tales now out!


I’m chuffed to have a story in the inaugural issue of Constellary Tales, a new pro SF venture for short fiction.

Reaching Up, Reaching Back” is a flash piece about a relationship that’s not between parent/child, siblings, lovers, enemies, or friends–an experiment on my part. I hope you enjoy it.
