Hi everyone and welcome to my Write-a-thon page!

My goal is to finish writing three pieces of short fiction. This summer is already proving to be a busy, (and rocky), one, but with your support and encouragement, I know I can do it!

Clarion West is a fantastic organization-any and all donations are greatly appreciated.

If you'd like to learn more about me, my writing, and what Clarion West means to me, please visit my website.



I've officially hit my target of three short stories!  All are flash length and include vampiric how-to guides, Midwestern aliens, and cupboard spiders eating small children. It's been fun! There's still a week to go, so I'll be writing a bonus story, (or poem). 

Thanks for everyone who's donated so far-you're amazing!
