I've had stories published in many magazines including Pantechnicon, Bewildering Stories, Whispering Spirits, Morpheus Tales, The Cynic, Estronomicon, AntipodeanSF, Paraxis, Mirror Dance, Scifikuest, Theaker’s Quarterly Fiction, and Aphelion.

My fiction has appeared in printed anthologies, most recently 'Skull & Crossbones' from Bedazzled Inc.
