“Beware Burning Snow” is now available for free in THE SIRENS CALL eZine!


I’m thrilled to announce that my short story –“Beware Burning Snow” — is now available to read for FREE over at The Sirens Call eZine Issue #58!

In “Beware Burning Snow”: In 1980, ash people warned ten-year-old Sissy of the imminent eruption of Mount St. Helens. But there’s a natural order to things, and now they’re back. Sissy’s not only driven to keep one eye on the mountain—she’s compelled to keep them from haunting her teenaged daughter, too.

This issue is huge and features stories from some really other cool people I personally know or have shared TOCs with, including Rebecca Rowland, Nina D’Arcangela, Lee Andrew Forman, Roxanne Dent, Edward Ahern, Naching T. Kassa (and Mark Towse will have a very powerful toxic romance ghost story coming up in 34O‘s Spring 2023 issue!).

If that weren’t enough, there’s a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Dancing in the Shadows: A Tribute to Anne Rice, which contains my story, “Haint Gonna Happen,” and one hundred percent benefits Animal Rescue of New Orleans!

Don’t miss this! If you want LOADS to read for the summer, download this now!

  1. OMGosh, what an excellent story! The voice, the polish, the dread… I had genuine goosebumps at the end!

    • Oh my gosh, THANK YOU!!! I am so GLAD YOU ENJOYED IT!! I am so grateful for all the support you give me. I really am. I was in the middle of writing another short story, but I had to put it all down to go edit, so … perhaps another story will come soon. You’re awesome. Also, sorry I didn’t see this comment until now. I’ve been getting hammered in the 34 ORCHARD inbox.
