Woke up to eighteen submissions in my Apex account this morning. I managed to whack it down to eleven. But it drives me nuts when I have to turn something that’s a good story away just because it’s not a good match for our magazine. Especially when it’s one of those stories that makes me think, “Dude, this is a good story!” while I’m reading it. So aggravating.

Appalachian gothic fiction writer - my works reflect a love of literature flavored by the darkness and magic residing in these ancient mountains. In my spare time, I Sim, I TikTok, I journal, but I always have a very strange sense of humor. I have lived away from the mountains and lived deep in the mountains. I currently live in Central Kentucky with my life partner and his cat. The mountains, their culture, their superstitions, their particular magics, will always be in my blood.
