It’s awards season, y’all, and that means the annual eligibility posts are out and about.
I’m thrilled to look back on this last year of my professional life; I taught my first classes for adults, heard LeVar Burton read my short story to a packed live audience, hosted another successful Art & Words Show, and published five works of short fiction.
Here’s the two that I’m holding up for your awards consideration:
“The Crow Knight”—Beneath Ceaseless Skies (October 2018)
Synopsis: When an invincible black crow whose presence causes emotional and physical pain haunts the Lady Loreen, her knight and best friend Ser Wynn goes beyond the kingdom to find the only weapon that can destroy it.
“The Men Who Come From Flowers”–F&SF (September 2018)
Synopsis: Susan raises a garden of boy flowers who will one day become men; when she rescues an injured flower and takes the man as her lover, she is forced to choose between the man’s love or his life.
