When You're Strange
Weirdos, freaks, and misfits welcome! There are things that define us. Things that separate us from the whole. Everyone's a stranger in some way or another. Whatever the circumstances, strangers are compelling protagonists. For CASFWG's third anthology, we present fifteen stories of strangers. From distant planets to rural locales, enjoy the unfamiliar.
Featuring my short story Always, Always, a tale of distrust and sacrifice in a futuristic Australia.
Available from Amazon in paperback and e-book
Earth Music is one of my favorite stories I've written, and features a blind alien girl who travels to Earth and dreams in music. Will the humans want to sing with her?
Chrysalis is a sweet and funny story (and my grandmother's favorite), available to read or listen to as a free podcast on Cast of Wonders.
The Falling Marionette
In the future, there will be new and wonderful technology to assist disabled people in living normal, independent lives. But when Cass receives an innovative exoskeleton to counteract the weakness caused by her spinal muscular atrophy, she soon learns it isn't her body preventing her from feeling normal. It's society.
