Humor Literary Fiction

'The Oldest Profession' was classified as Romance by Every Day Fiction. I wasn't keen on the classification, as I hadn't thought of it in that way when I was writing it!

Back in November 2016, my Fiancée and I headed to the Pompeii Excavation Site. I had been here when I was 15, back in 2005, but they’ve opened up SO MUCH more of the site since - I wasn’t prepared for the huge walk around the site haha, very warm day too. I’ve used one of Annie Spratt’s presets to give this photo a bit of extra depth, looks pretty good I think!

Science Fiction

This was always a particular favorite of mine, because I got to combine my love of hard science fiction with my love of old science fiction tropes. An American space station, now controlled by China after a war, is harboring a war criminal, and an idealistic engineer has to choose between doing what is right and doing what is right.

Fantasy Horror Humor spiritual Light medium & dark supernatural Light fate worse than death religious

This story has a checkered past. It started life as a 7500 word science fiction story but, after a very helpful critique by Shawna McCarthy at Realms of Fantasy (when she rejected it), it ended up as a 11,500 some odd word fantasy novelette in Interzone and later anthologized in INFINITE SPACE, INFINITE GOD, from Twilight Times and in the "Dark" part of my WindyCon Guest of Honor collection, BIMBO ON THE COVER. It is broken into fourteen parts—each corresponding to a Station of the Cross.

Science Fiction

This was my very first sold short story. I wrote it shortly after my wedding in Vietnam in 2001. Or I should say, I had already been working on the premise (the coopting of poor or third-world minds for distributed computing nodes, unappreciated minds become exploited labor) and a week in my mother-in-law's house made me change the setting.
