My first novel is published! This is the gorgeous cover by Julia Y (JuliaY.com). I am having a Book Release Show on Tuesday September 17th at 7pm at the AllWays Lounge (2240 Saint Claude Ave, New Orleans). Excerpts will be read by Moose Jackson and Sophia Vera Horodysky, and music will be provided by Shock Patina. Books will be available at the show at a discounted price, while they last.
Available on Amazon now! Spectacle of the Extension
And the novel will be available on Kindle within days!
Here’s the synopsis of the book:
A young painter armed with a sarcastic tongue and the ability to pull amazing espresso shots, Em has moved across the country to shed her past and lose herself in her artistic process.
One night the painting she’s been working on for months comes to life, its presence causing her to question the decisions she’s made and her relationship with reality. Is this creature merely a work of art, or something else entirely?
As the creature travels through Em’s world and she is drawn ever deeper into its own reality, they both unearth secrets about each other and the worlds around them.
–Below is the flier I made for the show, using Julia Y’s artwork for the rough draft of the cover:
A story about Roman Wing, one of the characters in the novel about New Orleans I’ve been working on, which is in the same world as my novella “the episodes”. It’s more of a glimpse of the world of my novel rather than a stand alone short story, but hopefully entertaining none the less.
This is the first in an ongoing series of collaborative multimedia stories which, because there are elements embedded into the story, can only exist online. For this story I collaborated with musician/lyricist Jameison Kenny. The story was written for my friend Ari’s birthday, and is chock-full of floating rocks, mercenaries, crustaceans and rogue dreams.

I finally got my website menu all put together (mostly). And in celebration of that and my 5 year anniversary of living in New Orleans, I’m posting a story I really like. It’s about quarters, and a few other things.
Two Pieces of Eight
This was my first publication, in an online magazine called Thieves Jargon back in the beginning of 2009. Its about a father and a daughter, about moths and dreamy science, about night clubs and transformations.
I’m messing with all the nuts and bolts, so feel free to look around at my stories and such and pardon the mess, and I’ll have it all looking pretty in no time.
A story I wrote a few years ago, full of little known facts about the floral world and its effects on the rest of us. Click here to read it, and let me know what you think!
No real updates at the moment. I am still working on my novel which shall include nomadic desert people, reality-altering devices and a motor scooter. Feel free to look around at my stories and my online novella, the episodes.
Sorry for the lack of new postings – I’ve been working on longer works so I haven’t finished anything new in a while.
I’m currently constructing a novel of interconnecting worlds involving but not limited to: the secrets of the universe; creatures that breathe and swim through clouds; blind-folded nomads; the truth about clock towers. Meanwhile, check out my stories section or read my online novella, the episodes.

A brand new story is up in my stories section. Another selection I wrote for The Avant Guardian.
