Short Stories and [an] Article…

For Hyacinth Noir, the gay pagan’s zine. This is my “literary home.” I love this place, and it’s an essential piece of my life, not just as a writer, but as a seeker of spiritual understanding and my Druid path.

NEWR + M = Love – Lughnasadh story featuring epic, centuries-old lovers Robin Hood and Merlin.

The Willow and the Dove – a retelling of a Grimm fairy tale. This was my first published story.

The Fairies’ Crossing – A new queen defies the prejudicial traditions of her ancestors.

Lughnasadh | Spotlight Issue – I talk about the importance of this celebration using the topics of food, death and remembrance.

The Hero and the Chalice – Lucy is a stay-at-home pagan lesbian mom getting ready for the autumn equinox. This is a personal favorite.

Atticus of the Braithwolds – Atticus, on a long-term retreat for neopagans, encounters a hot bard and a startling new talent. The hottie and the talent are related, but how?

The Memory Collector – A loose retelling of ETA Hoffman’s story The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, The Memory Collector follows mysterious and magical minstrel Marin Krespel as he tries to free his lover Haldis from the evil clutches of the underground “king,” Ogstin Marv.

The Hero and the Palace – A continuation of “The Hero and the Chalice.” In this, Darien and his man Piers are holding a handfast at Piers’ parents country place. These characters remain some of my favorites to write about.

Anthologies…

Chicago New Town Writers – Off The Rocks! Vol. 17
In this anthology, my story is “The House that Cain Built.” Set in the late 1980’s, with big hair and bangles, housemates Flair and Josie have a special bond that Josie’s boyfriend Josh is trying to usurp. For a sneak-peek of the story, follow this link to the safety of my blog.

The anthology is nice, lots of high-quality stories and poems from all walks of LGBT life, many from the New Town Writers’ crew themselves! Purchase it exclusively on Lulu.com for $13 (plus shipping).

Another anthology I was in got messed up, I’m not in it properly (wrong name), although my story is in there. While the error was disappointing to me personally, I realize that these things happen. But if you’d like to buy it, and try to figure out which story is mine, here’s a link! The anthology’s current price is $10.29 (as of 11/19/2014). Should you read it, and have a guess as to which story might be mine, please send me an email! Also, the purchase of the book goes toward a good cause, the Image Out festival in Rochester, New York.
