New Short Stories

I’ve had a handful of brand-new short stories (very short stories!) go up on the internet lately. You can check them out for free!

The most recent is a little piece about a mother, her son, and the sea that appeared as part of the Ladies of Horror Flash Project. Alondra has settled in to watch the sunset on her vacation in Cinque Terre when a man asks for her help. It’s called “Far from Home.” You can read it here.

Need a break from real-life horrors? I’ve got you. “Dumb Supper” is the little Mardi Gras horror story I read for Strong Women, Strange Worlds. Jambalaya fixes everything. You can watch it on Youtube: 

Elaine Pascale read my “Petrichor Gothic” for another Ladies of Horror Challenge. Sometimes all you want is to get out of the rain in a cozy little ghost story. I’ll embed it below, or you can listen to it on Youtube.

All three of these stories are about Alondra DeCourval, the heroine of my series of chapbooks on Amazon. You can learn more about her stories here.

  1. I enjoyed your reading the story of Alondra in New Orleans. The jambalaya must have been special. The other Alondra story made me want to know about the ghost. Thanks for sharing with us.
