I’ve updated my collection of Alondra stories, thanks to these fabulous new covers by Lex at Huntress Studios.

All four of them are available for your kindle on Amazon!

The Kickstarter for Death’s Garden Revisited: Personal Relationships with Cemeteries was a rousing success. The campaign reached $5199, fulfilling all its stretch goals.

The book collects essays from cemetery docents, tourists, genealogists, urban explorers, ghost hunters, and more.

The book itself will be out in October 2022.

“The Devil’s Debt” will appear in an upcoming issue of Occult Detective magazine.

My death-obsessed memoir, This Morbid Life, collects up the morbid personal essays I wrote for zines about surviving the AIDS epidemic, visiting cadaver labs, eating bugs, and more. The Amazon links are up, with more to come.

I read a true ghost story from This Morbid Life for Fright Girl Autumn.
