After seeing Star Trek and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, I have a special love for adventuring out into space. There weren’t many women in the science fiction books I read growing up, so I have lots of women having adventures. Links to pages with blurbs coming soon.
This was for an anthology call and provided the opening sentence. Everyone was going to do first person or dialogue, so I wanted to be different and started with a tweet.
A sampler of 5 of my short stories. All of these feature women having adventures.
This is a dark science fiction story, a legacy of my Desert Storm days. I knew a person like the character’s friend in the story.
People creating cat traps (a box) went viral on the Internet, so I thought why not alien traps?
This was for an anthology call for disability and steampunk. I thought about what it was like for the Hawaiians when the first missionaries came to the island and what they might have offered.
This story started as an assignment from a workshop, inspired by a fuzzy blue pillow. Stranger things happen when creativity is involved
A woman actor ages out of roles much faster than men. So my character takes to space travel to continue doing what she loves.
I looked out the window and saw a woman in a bright red coat towing a cooler. What’s in that cooler? Read the story to find out.
I attended an art exhibit at the Smithsonian’s American Indian Museum. Wonderful exhibit, and I thought about the stories art tells us, even when we don’t realize it.
I ran across a very old book at the library that mentioned a cursed painting of a cat that had caused all its owners to die. Oddly, the sketch of the cat looked like one I had growing up, Dum-Dum (my mother named the cat).
