Short Stories

Here are links to just a few of my published short stories. I hope you enjoy them!

After the hurricane, we were inextricably bound by the new calendar that defined our lives. Forever more, all things would be divided into before- or after-Marilyn. 

This creative nonfiction essay reflecting on hurricane recovery appears in the Sunlight Press Summer 2018 issue. After Hurricane Marilyn devastated my home, St. Thomas, USVI, on the night of September 15-16, 1995, life was forever changed. But, as happens, somewhere over the hard months afterwards, recovery became recovered.

Golf Goes On

Around the clubhouse, the four men were known as “The Old Putters.” They'd been playing together for decades and their daily round was inviolable. Not even death can come between The Old Putters and their game.

Published in the July 21, 2014 "Great Friendships" issue of Infective Ink..."the expansion and consumption of the fiction section at NaughtyGirlx.com. NGX was dedicated to humour and found that the majority of the fiction we rejected was really quite good, but did not meet our humour requirement. Turning away wonderful stories soon became tiresome, and the seed of Infection was born. We would be a repository for all sorts of fiction, all genres and styles - the idea was then warped into something that would keep us compelled long into the future."
