Two of my recent stories have been shortlisted for 2023 Word Awards by The Word Guild! “The Homely Dreams of a Silly Soul,” published last year in Solum Literary Journal, has been shortlisted in the Short Story–Christian Market category, while “Parking Spots,” published in December 2022 in Blank Spaces, was shortlisted in the Short Story–General Market category. Winners will be announced September 16! Both stories will appear in The Healing Arts, my new collection of Mulder tales. Stay tuned for publication news!
