Three Days with the Kid

Another writing announcement! My piece “Three Days with the Kid” has just been published as part of Strange Horizons‘s climate crisis special.

You can read the piece online, or listen to it on the podcast.

Make sure you check out the gorgeous art by Dante Luiz while you’re there!


  1. I absolutely loved this story. You’re writing is very crisp and effective. The characters in this story felt real and the ending was so heartwarming and bittersweet because of them. I know it’s a bit egotistical of me to demand things from creators but I almost would like to see more of Rosie and basically-her-dad-now. Either way, I hope you continue writing. I’ve read “Plucked” and “In These Walls” so far and I love your style and choice of subject matter. I hope you have a successful life.

      Thank you so much for taking the time to let me know you enjoyed it! I like to think that they manage to keep safe and possibly add more lonely people to their little found family over time 🙂

      I’m definitely still writing, although at the moment I’m up to my neck in a novel, so the short stories are on the back-burner while I wrestle with that!

      Thanks again.
