What I Write

Writing Sample

“A guest of United Tribes Sky Eagle Orbiting Resort should never know you’re there,” the housekeeping manager, Gloria Tan Oak, told Birdie and the others on their first day. Indians had put a casino on a space station, it stood to reason that they could provide a resort experience while invisible as well.

My Write-a-thon Goals

Writing Goals

A couple of years ago I had this mad idea that I could pop out endless short stories and novels and everything else if I just organized my time better. After a few months my brains were leaking out my ears and life was a joyless chug.  I dialed back to more manageable goals.


During that time, I finished the first draft of a 6000k short story and I have never looked at it since.


For the write-a-thon I’m going dig it out, see what I’ve got, and get it ready for submitting.

Fundraising Goals

I’m going to match donations up to $100. Micro-donations welcome.
