Anthologies, Short Fiction, & Prose Non-Fiction

I love short fiction. I taught it at university. Thus far, I've contributed to a number of anthologies, edited a few, and have a collection of my short fiction.

I've also contributed to THREE collections of essays for charity. In those, I spoke about rape, growing up poor but feminist, and the PTSD that followed the rape. All three are 2018 releases.

Below you will find a brief overview of the anthologies for which I've edited and/or contributed stories.
