I’ll update this section when new projects are on the way! Here are some upcoming stories…

Ink coming from Other Worlds Ink August 10!

Ink: Queer Sci Fi's Eighth Annual Flash Fiction Contest (Queer Sci Fi's Flash Fiction Contest Book 1) by [J. Scott Coatsworth, Sheryl R. Hayes]My short story “Openings” – about a bibliomancer and a librarian, and the importance of the right words – will be part of this anthology of fantasy & science fiction flash fiction, centered around the theme of “ink”! I’m so thrilled to be a part of this project – so many fabulous authors!

Pre-order links available here:


“Bookwyrm” – my next little flash fiction short from JMS Books! Coming September 2021!

In which the local witch hears rumors that a dragon’s moved in to his neighborhood…but it’s not the sort of dragon he’s expecting…

The Featherbed Puzzle – coming October 2021 from JMS Books!

A light and fluffy alternate-eighteenth century m/m retelling of “The Princess and the Pea,” full of many Terrible Suitors, a jigsaw puzzle or two, a surprising amount of soup, one True Love (who adopts puppies and kittens in need of a home), and a frankly excessive amount of featherbeds.
