Along with my blog posts about real-life stuff, I also write fiction about made-up stuff. Some of these stories get published in magazines, but others I write specifically to post here, on my website. I've compiled a list of these stories for anyone needing a serious dose of make-believe.

So here they are, from most to least recent:

FAIRY TALE ENDING:

Flash fiction piece about a young girl at her last fitting for her last dress. This piece was from a prompt given at the 2017 Kenyon Review Writers Workshop with EJ Levy. Trigger Warning: terminal illness.

ALL THE WAYS THAT I LOVED HER:

A (short) love story about all the consuming love between two people, and the dangers and thrills therein.

THE CAPTAIN'S FOLLY

Wherein a young man takes a trip to Maine to find himself and does exactly that, in a roundabout way. A ghost story based on the legend of the Dames Blanches.

THE KINGS' ERRAND: 

Three Elvis Impersonators want to move to Las Vegas and retire like the Kings they are, after one last job.

THE MADRAS RACES, 1943: 

Sati Devi meets her first husband, and the Maharaja his second wife in this historical fiction piece.

UNEARTHED:

It's been raining in Ohio for 60 days, and one woman is afraid the long-ago murder of her husband may finally be revealed in this speculative fiction piece.
