Read my short story “My Pet Trilobite” in Ricky’s Back Yard based on a real-life sideshow fraud.
Read my short story “The Death of the Dinosaurs” in Ricky’s Back Yard based on Ken Ham’s Creation Museum.
Other published works: “Don’t Ask” in Profane Journal, “Selfie” in Deadly Quill, and “Passover” in Sprout.

The nobility stumbled about in the cramped foyer alongside the intellectuals who jabbered with their berets pressed close together. The venue,… Read more
