NEW FICTION – “Clearest Waters”


Here’s a reason to celebrate: My very first paid publication is now live online. I’m fresh off a 50+ hour work week and half hallucinating, so I’m questioning whether this is real or not, but if my eyes don’t deceive me, you can read my short story “Clearest Waters” HERE.

The submission call asked for a 100 word (exact) short story fitting the theme “Underwater.” As a general hater of arthropods (nothing personal, y’all are just nasty & trifling), I knew what I had to write about.

I’m eternally grateful to Black Hare Press for giving me my first real publication. Their online “Dark Moments” collection is tremendously addicting, and don’t say I didn’t warn you. My story, along with the other monthly tales, will be collected in print in their YEAR THREE anthology, available Jan. 29, 2022.

      Heck, thanks for reading. I appreciate you taking the time to find my page to say something about it, too. It’s one thing to get published, another thing entirely for someone out there to enjoy it. Knowing it’s the latter means a lot.

      Feel free to follow my site. I have a some publications I’m pretty excited about this year.
