I got a degree in Creative Writing way back in the '90s but never did anything with it, mostly due to a tragic lack of interested Beta readers and the whirlwind of youth.

My latest work:

🎄"The Christmas Thaddeus Came to Call" is my entry to "A Christmas Contest." England, 1875. It's Lizzie's first Christmas as a married woman and her stern in-laws are coming for dinner. The last thing she needs is her brother ,Thaddeus, who she hasn't seen in years, turning up with a present for her under his arm. . .

🌴"Hooverville" is my bundled collection of 500-word stories from WP contests like Aimed to Engage II and the Halloween Vault. I'll give a free in-depth critique of the first 5 chapters of any work to the first person who PMs me with the definition of what a "Hooverville" is and why it fits a flash fiction collection.

🐭 "Scurry, Scurry Little Rat" is a Steampunk retelling of a short story by @SassyRedWritingHood about a rat catcher and the heist he gets pulled into.


I do read-for-reads with serious adult writers of short stories (10 chapters or less), flash fiction and poetry.
