Dear Fellow HWA member: 

In accordance with the Bram Stoker Award® rules I’m offering copies of two works for your consideration. The first is Altars and Oubliettes, my poetry collection available as a PDF download here:

Synopsis: In our lives, there are altars and oubliettes—the things we want to remember and the things we hope to forget. This collection explores the things we both idolize and abhor. Above all things is the message to live authentically and well. No matter how long the night seems, there will always be stars to guide us. See Altars and Oubliettes on Amazon here.

My second offering is my short story “Skin Dowdy,” which appeared in Black Cranes: Tales of Unquiet Women. Available as a free download here.

Synopsis: A young woman fights to stay at the head of the cosmetech trends and her husband’s heart. She will go to any length to maintain her beauty but in the end, it isn’t enough. To her credit, even when everything falls apart she keeps her poise. See Black Cranes: Tales of Unquiet Women here.
