Exciting news: my story “El Monstruo” has been accepted for publication in Spinetingler Magazine, one of the oldest mystery/crime fiction zines on the web. They were nominated for an Anthony in 2011, I believe. Pretty awesome. Big thanks to editor Jack Getze, author of the Austin Carr novels Big Numbers and Big Money, for the [...]
Ashley Reynolds of The Coachella Review interviewed about my story “The Tattooist’s Daughter,” published in the Fall issue of the magazine. Check it out!
I heard this morning from Cameron over at The Crime Factory, and they’ve selected “Able Dog” for CF12! I’ve been enjoying these short crime stories of late, and like “Plata o Plomo,” this story is set against the world of aerial drug-smuggling.
The Crime Factory was originally launched back in 2000 by an Australia-based editor, David [...]
Great news! I heard this week that my short story “The Tattooist’s Daughter” has been accepted for the upcoming (Fall) issue of The Coachella Review, the literary journal of the UC Riverside Palm Desert Graduate Center.
This is one of the few stories I’ve written from a female’s POV. Of course I’ll update this post as [...]

As one of the finalists, it will be published in the forthcoming issue of The New Guard. I’ll update this post when it [...]

Exciting news: my story “Bone Valley” has been published in the June 2012 issue of The Bacon Review.
I just learned that a story I wrote in June, “Killafella Creek,” has been accepted for publication in one of my favorite short crime fiction zines, Plots with Guns. I wrote this story specifically with them in mind, so I’m really excited. The story involves gator hunting, airboats, drug-smuggling, and of course there’s a gun [...]
My story “Covered Bridge” has been published in the final, “Super Issue” of Porchlight. Check it out here: Covered Bridge. This story was inspired by this river we went to for a picnic just south of Lake Lure. There is a covered bridge there – definitely nouveau, not historic.
“River of Fire,” a short story, has been published at storySouth, one of my favorite online publications. Way back in the day (well…2008), a story of mine was almost published there; it would have been my first story published. So anyways, I’ve been trying to get a story in storySouth since then.
