2020 News:

Unsafe Words, a collection of my horror/science fiction/dark fantasy short stories, will be out on September 20!

Don’t you love Lynne Hansen’s beautiful cover?

I read a couple of stories from Unsafe Words at Story Hour. You can watch the video on Facebook. I start about 29 minutes in, but you might enjoy RS Benedict’s story, too. https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=744234116395899&extid=op7nr2BNpZaCuw6t

I read a snippet of another story from the book for the San Mateo Public Library’s horror series. I’ll post the link when the video goes live.
