When did you begin writing your own stories? What inspired you?
I've been writing since I was little. I'm disabled, so my body didn't always work well for me to do other hobbies. Writing just kind of ... was the only thing I could do.
Tell us about Love & Bubbles! How did this anthology come about?
I don't know exactly how it came about, but I can tell you how I got involved. Jaylee James was the first editor to ever publish my work, and we became friends. Around the time he was working on Love & Bubbles, I got the idea to work on my own anthology and I asked him for advice. He took me on as an assistant.
How did editing an anthology change your process of writing?
We got so many good stories that were the classic "mermaid meets human, falls in love" story. The ones that were different instantly got our attention. So no matter how good the story is, I've learned that it's always a good idea to go for the weird, the 'out there.'
What is your current project, and can you share some information about it with us?
I've got stories in a couple anthologies coming out soon, but I'm not sure how much information I can share right now. So let me promote my other anthology I co-edited with Brian McNett:
Space Opera Libretti.
Space Opera ... emphasis on the opera. 20 stories, poems, and even an actual opera script fill the pages of this comedic and musical science fiction anthology.
Time traveling cats! A song that never ends! Invisible bears! All that and more from first-time authors and award-winning veterans.
Mystery and Horror, LLC, is an indie press interested in what the name suggests.
