“Warrior II” won the Pauline B. Adamson Award for Excellence in Writing, 2nd Place for Fiction (2013).
NASA announces that in seven years, aliens may arrive on Earth to kill humanity. Cam, a middle school student bullied by his older stepbrother, and Mr. Harrison, the new teacher, attempt to combat the chaos and panic unfolding around them. This story was part of my undergrad thesis, “Growing Pains at the End of the World”, a collection of long stories in speculative and realistic fiction. The thesis was presented at Carnegie Mellon’s Celebration of the Humanities (Feb 2013).
“My Witness is Dead” was rated “Top Submission” in poetry by Dossier Art and Literary Magazine (Fall 2011).
