Armadillo

I've been writing fiction for six years, mostly flash fiction and short stories. I started submitting stories to literary magazines this year, and the rejections have been rolling in. I've completed one chapter each of two novels and hope to transition from short stories to novel-length work this year or next.

Hey, I'm an aspiring writer from Chiang Mai, Thailand. I've been writing for a while, but I've yet to publish. I know my mechanics and basic principles, so I'm almost ready to start putting my work out there. Right now, I'm gathering material, working out a manageable editorial calendar, and thinking of of consistent content ideas.

 

I'm interested in learning the tricks of the trade and joining craft communities.

 

Hope to meet some interesting people.

I'm a full-time freelance writer. I work mostly within legal, technology, and financial verticals. In my 'off' hours, I'm a fiction writer. While I have written (and published) several books and multiple plays, short fiction is my first love and remains my preferred literary vehicle for storytelling. I'm thrilled to have recently pivoted away from the world of journalism with an increased focus on short fiction :-)

I'm a writer and former journalist turned educator. After earning my MFA at UCR, I disappeared for a couple years to the other side of the world: Australia and New Zealand. I write both creative nonfiction and fiction, and am currently finishing a YA novel. I'm open to both meeting in person (I've had my shots!) and online.

I believe in the fantastical.

In 2011, I created two blogs: Bornstoryteller and Tale Spinning. The first was filled with essays about education, the good and the not-so-good, and a few other pertinent subjects. The latter is my Creative Fiction blog, flash friction-filled, poetry-laden, serialized tales, and whatever interested me along the way. My range tore through Fantasy, Horror, Science/Speculative Fiction, Humor, Thrillers, and Crime. I dabbled in various styles, having fun with Pulp Fiction, Hard-Boiled Noir, Victorian England, and as many sub-genres of the genres that interested me. 

I have been published, online, in three anthologies, two novellas, assorted Flash Fiction and Poetry groups, essays, and had the privilege of creating/hosting a Shared World Blog Challenge. An editor in England has an eco-system/non Dystopian novella in his hands that was requested. The 42 Word Anthology has two of my pieces accepted and awaiting publication. Submissions are out flying around. Finally, I lead workshops in Creative Writing as well as three online writing groups (Critique; Generative; and Poetry).
