My fun superhero short story, “Welcome to the Legion of Six” has been published by The Overcast. This is my first podcast publication and I think the audio format suits this story particularly well, particularly with J.S. Arquin’s expressive narration. Have a listen here.
I now have a page on Curious Fictions where I’ll be posting behind-the-scenes content related to my books as well as reprints of blog posts and short stories. Come find me there!
The audiobook of Jade City, narrated by Andrew Kishino, is a finalist for the 2019 Audie Awards in the Fantasy category.

Listen to a sample here, or download the book at Audible, Downpour, or wherever audiobooks are sold.
Winners will be announced at the Audie Awards Gala on March 4th.
