Where you can find my work . . .
River City Secrets: Stories from Richmond is a collection of middle-grade short stories. Written by eighteen different authors and edited by Lana Krumwiede, the anthology is published by RVA indie press Chop Suey Books Books. My short story "Quetzal at the VuumFah" takes place at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
To order the book, see the Chop Suey website. To find more information, including bios of the authors and classroom study guides, see the Richmond Children's Writers website. A portion of the proceeds of this book will go to James River Writers. The remaining proceeds will be used to fund school visits to Richmond-area schools.
River Town is a collection of short stories set in 1890s West Virginia. The combined work of six different authors, the tales range from adventure to romance, from intrigue to fantasy. Each story stands alone, yet together they take readers to a time along the Kanawha River just after the Civil War when families were still struggling to recover and as the railroad was first making its way through the mountains. The river was the center of everything.
My short story "Hayden's Return" opens the book and raises more questions than it answers, setting some of the other stories in motion.
Find it on Amazon.

I currently have a Young Adult fantasy novel out on submission, so wish me luck with that.
Also, if anyone knows any other river-themed anthologies I should submit to, let me know.
