What I Write

Writing Sample

This is a love story, the last of a series of moments when we meet.


Saki Jones leaned into the viewport window until her nose nearly touched the glass, staring at the colony planet below. New Mars. From this distance, she could pretend that things were going according to plan—that M.J. was waiting for her in one of the domed cities. A shuttle would take her down to the surface and she and her lifelove would pursue their dream of studying a grand alien civilization.


It had been such a beautiful plan.


– Excerpt from The Archronology of Love (Lightspeed, April 2019)
