Happy to have four of my poems in Circle Show, a literary magazine from Seven CirclePress. They are “After Watching The Babadook,” “New Year,” “Before the Worst,” and “How to Make a Monster.” Thank you Seth Jani and Taryn Hendrix for giving my creepy poetry a lovely home
Thrilled to have my prose poem “Stippled” published in the newest issue of Thimble Literary Magazine. Thanks to Nadia Arioli and staff for giving my weird ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response) poem a beautiful home. If you’d like to listen to the video that inspired me, here’s ASMR Ascension and his Brush Salesman Role Play.
Very excited to see my poems, “The Warm-Up Girls” and “Urban Legend” in the beautiful pages of Canthius. Thank you to the editors for giving my horror a home.
I had so much fun co-judging the Piney Dark Horror Contest this year! Always happy to return to the haunted back roads of East Texas, especially in October. Well done, writers, and thank you especially Dr. Steve Marsden for reaching out to me. Can’t wait to congratulate the winners!

I love what Capsule Books does and even more now that they have a literary journal, Capsule Stories! You can read more about their story here. I just received my copy of their Fall 2019 edition, Autumn Gloom, which features two of my horror poems, “She Waits Outside Your House” and “Lost in a Hell Dimension.” It’s a beautiful issue and just in time for the spooky season. I’m so ready to snuggle up with some apple cider and read.
I am so thrilled to see my poem, “Woodshop Scene” in the pages of South Dakota Review. It’s based on two lovely people I worked with at the Dent Schoolhouse in Cincinnati, Ohio. Thank you to Avery M. Guess to recommending the publication and Lee Ann Roripaugh for giving this bloody poem a good home.
