This site is a step on a new journey. I’ve always been interested in literature, fairy tale, myth, and legend – our mythic imagination.
In July 2010, I began writing in earnest, inspired by friends. A few stories have been in my mind for years, but many are newborn. I’ve been gratified that publishers are choosing to accept my stories, and hope that I will continue to find words that resonate with the strange and wonderful themes that are proposed for new magazine issues and anthologies every day.
I’m finding that my stories are ranging wildly across genres, from fantasy to horror, from erotica to spiritual. All of these genres offer windows into the cravings and fears of the human heart.
It is particularly fitting that my first story to be published will be in the magazine Crossed Genres, which occupies this same space — all stories are speculative, but the genre changes each month. You’ll find my story, The Frog Princess, in issue 23, which has a Dreams and Nightmares theme, expected October 2010.
This blog will be a place to record this journey of the imagination that so far has ranged from ancient Greece to medieval Ethiopia, from turn of the century Japanese and Serbian immigrants to young women in a modern Phillipines town, and to modern urban spaces like the ones I inhabit everyday.
