November 4, 2021 – Just got word that my short story “Roadkill” has been accepted appear in Lemon Peel Press‘s inaugural issue “Disgust.” Apart from this being the first short story I ever wrote and got published, it is also my favorite. So glad to bring it out of retirement for this opportunity…and also a couple of others. BIG thanks to Josh Andrew and Ambrose Kelly for the acceptance.

The short story “When Blood Wants Blood” accepted for reprint at fresh.ink!!!

September 12, 2019 – Wonderful news today!!! Short story “When Blood Wants Blood”, originally published at Down in the Dirt Magazine, was accepted for reprint at fresh.ink (publication date TBD). Keeping my fingers crossed about a second piece that I sent to them (i.e., “Roadkill”) that is still under consideration. Many thanks to fresh.ink’s Editorial Team for the inclusion in their amazing publication.

New (and subtly naughty) poem “Cajeta (Gimme Some Sweet!)” published today at Cajun Mutt Press today!!!

September 3, 2019 – The brand new poem Cajeta (Gimme Some Sweet!)” was published today at Cajun Mutt Press. While a tiny bit “blue”, it is more a fanatic love letter to poets everywhere than anything, really, for all the “ear candy” they give us (though there are also a couple more underlying narratives imbedded in there as well). 

This is the third creative piece of mine that reflects bits and pieces of my cultural identity — relatively new territory for me in terms of writing, but I am starting to have some fun (and take some risks) with it. Previous pieces include the short story “When Blood Wants Blood” (originally published at Down in the Dirt – vol 164 “The Deep Woods”) and the prose poem “Digging for Lost Temples” (soon to be published at Drunk Monkeys). I have one or two more pieces to toss around in my head before pen hits paper. Looking forward to seeing what happens next.
