Fiction

I’m an aspiring  writer.  I began writing fiction a few years ago, almost as a form of therapy.  I wanted to rediscover what it was like to write for the fun of writing, not because I needed to cultivate publications for tenure.  Writing short stories gave me a lot of joy.

Since then, I’ve had some success in getting stories published in literary magazines–ones I greatly admire.

Below you’ll find links to stories that have appeared in various print and online literary magazines.  Enjoy!
