The Encaustic Materials Handbook, a Kindle publication, is finally done, uploaded and available to own and cherish for all time. Yes, I wrote it. Took a long time, and I’m really glad it’s over. But enough about me. Get the book on Amazon. Want more me? View my Amazon author page.
In my other life I write stories. Fun fictions, scary tales, stories of the weird, wacky and wonderful. Want to read some stories? Here is a list of online publications that contain my work:
ValkYra of the Damned. Sniplits. October 2011. ValkYra the movie? No, it’s even better–ValkYra the audio version.
ValkYra of the Damned. Tales of the Zombie War. October 2010. If they aren’t dead what are they?
The Red Tent. Spinetingler. June 2010. Mountain climbing and tales told round the water bottle.
Restaurant Mash Note. Pacific NW College of Art blog called Untitled (that has to be an art joke). A poem by me, if you can believe it. June 2010. Check out the truly wonderful work of Kim Stafford while you’re mousing around.
The Blesser (the original that started it all) at Sniplits. Buying a house in today’s market? Read here first.
Carter’s Third Funeral. Rose & Thorn Journal. Big Grandma’s gone or is she?
Lucky .003. The Future Fire. Time travel…stop the world and let her off. Be sure to check out the very cool cover art.
The Cat, the Desert and Lucky .003. Clonepod. A podcast of Lucky .003. It always sounds better when someone else reads it.
Nine-or Ten-Foot Angels. Reflection’s Edge. Broke in Oregon in winter. With little kids. And angels.
The Moon Dreams of Water. Honorable mention. On The Premises. Singing to cheese on the moon.
Longer and longer stories
I’m currently a slave to Eponymous Black, a mystery novel about a woman of a certain age–not old enough for Medicare but definitely too old to say no to sex and drugs and rock ‘n roll. When the daughter of an old lover tries to learn how her father died, Vinnie (our heroine) decides to dig deeply into her radical past. Status: Draft 2.
Other end of the spectrum: I’m also writing Blade Bright, an early young adult novel about a brother and sister who possess a weapon of unspeakable power that makes people disappear. Or is it magic? All they want is to find their mom and dad and live a normal life. But what if they have to use the weapon on themselves to find their parents? Status: Draft 1.5.
Here’s a link to my first blog, Madison, After, which is no longer active but still has some cool posts about the apocalypse. Dentistry, tinned food and tires–all those questions you have about what may or may not survive the end of the world.
