Winner, winner

I just received notice that my short story, "Bogged Down," received the third place award for Fiction Vortex's June fiction contest.  Woo-hoo!

They said:
Bogged Down blew us away because it managed to make botany so compelling. We wanted to see that Ghost Orchid as bad as the protagonist did. What starts off as a fairly sedate story turns funny, then intriguing, then unsettling, then creepy, then frightening, and finally reassuring. That’s quite the roller coaster to take readers on.

And to think; I don't even like roller coasters!  Oh Irony, you are a cheeky mistress!

Thanks to all the folks at Fiction Vortex!  I'm honored to be a part of your publication!

  1. Hello! This is probably not the best way to contact you but you don't have your email available. I was hoping to ask you if I could narrate Bogged Down as the first story of my horror story narration youtube channel. Please email me at to discuss?
    Thank you!
