For various reasons, I have not been able to devote as much of my free time to writing this year as I would like. That said, I do have several short stories and novellas coming out in anthologies this year. I'm very proud of these stories, which allowed me to try different genres, and I hope you enjoy them too!
The first is the 'Revolution' anthology, which will debut at UTOPiA Con in June. Proceeds benefit the Help Build a South African Library Foundation. This was my first Dystopian story, and I really enjoyed writing it! If you are in the Nashville, TN area and/or plan on attending the conference, you can order your copy here.
Another anthology project that I am part of this year is the Debut Collective. This collection of five books contains stories from veteran authors and debut authors. There is literally a story for every reader in this collection! Aren't the covers gorgeous? I want to buy one of each just to have these gems on my bookshelf. If you're coming to UTOPiA Con, you can pre-order your copies for a special price here.
My story, A Rose, appears in the Hostile Takeover collection. It’s my first foray into horror, and I had a blast writing it.

I am participating in two more anthology projects this year, but as those are still rather early in the process, I'll share more at a later date. Watch for upcoming details!
