The following is a collection of my fiction projects that I have released in either text or audio format.
- “A Heart Has Roots of Flame and Blood”:
Miranda watches as the tree’s purple roots slowly lap blood from the frozen topsoil. They twist and slither over the ground, pushing away the pebbles that surround its base, looking for every last drop within their reach. The cut on her arm stopped bleeding a moment ago, and she glances at her phone, a stop watch running on its screen.
- “Memories of Stars”:
I am collecting rocks at the edge of the wilderness when Talik finds me. I hear him before I see him, wings flapping as he flies between crumbling towers towards the open expanse of my improvised quarry. I pause in my work, gripping a sharp stone tight in my hand.
- “What His Sister Told Him”:
Eddie Cohallan hated winter, and that was only thing that was keeping him warm this night.
The harsh wind of the Midwestern countryside blew the snow off of the great drifts on either side of the highway as he drove. The constant bellow created thin white rivers that flowed across the pavement at the crest of each rise, and had begun to form dangerous and irregular piles of the stuff wherever the road dipped too low.
- “Midnight Stroll”: A flash piece I wrote for a Flash Fiction challenge.
