Here you will find some fiction that I have written. I haven't been doing much creative writing recently, but it is something that I plan on getting back to. The stories are sorted alphabetically and include genre and approximate read times. If you're not sure where to start, I would recommend Caldera
if you like fantasy and There Are No Words
if science fiction is more your style.

More fun than it sounds, really. Originally published in issue 33 of Crossed Genres. Since they are closing shop, I'm posting it here.
