Three Pieces in Nailpolish Stories

The October 2017 issue of Nailpolish Stories features three of my stories: “Jaded,” “Pearls of Wisdom,” and “Something Blue.” Nailpolish Stories is unique in that each story (or poem) published on its site needs to be exactly 25 words–and titled with an actual nail polish color.


“Reservations” in Brilliant Flash Fiction

Brilliant Flash Fiction has published my story, “Reservations,” in its 15th issue, September 2017. The goal of Brilliant Flash Fiction, based in Ireland, is “to present the best and most unusual international fiction for readers.” Stories in this quarterly publication contain fewer than 1,000 words as well as a “‘flash’ of revelation or surprise.”

National Flash-Fiction Day

I was honored to have my 100-word story, “Yesterday,” selected to appear on National Flash-Fiction Day, June 24, 2017. FlashFlood the National Flash-Fiction Day Journal posted stories of 500 words or fewer throughout the day, and I was thrilled to have my story included.

Three Stories in Boston Literary Magazine

The Winter 2017 issue of Boston Literary Magazine contains not one, not two, but three of my stories. “Underdeveloped,” “Bargains,” and “A Day at the Ballpark” are all 50-word stories, also known as “Dribble.” (“Drabble” refers to 100-word stories.) My first published 50-word story, “Perspective,” appeared in the Summer 2015 issue of Boston Literary Magazine.
