What I Write

Writing Sample

Some say I’m the best witch hunter of the Second Prohibition. Maybe I am. I bagged and sent 18 bona fides to burn like Edison bulbs in Sing Sing. J. Edgar told my chief that me and my partner Crossan were the best men in the Bureau. I’m at Communion 6:00 AM every goddamn morning. You could ring the church bells by me.

 

But I’m a fraud, and proof positive that God isn’t Love. God is Irony.

 

Exhibit A: I’m a woman. Not even Crossan knows.

 

Exhibit B: I’m a bull dyke.

 

Exhibit C: My wife is a witch.

 

– From “Semele’s Daughter” in Broken Time Blues, 2011

What I Write

I’ve written stories about zombie foodies, 1920s witch hunting feds, AR & gamification in near-future religion, octopuses in steampunk-Edo, and alien fungal invasions. I’m currently writing a fungalpunk serial for Broken Eye Books, a series of Lovecraft & Leiber-inspired tales about two women who travel medieval Japan fighting Mythos creatures, and a novella about a Japanese-American soldier fighting in the Pacific in World War Two, confronting racism and ghosts.
