Bones in the Rock

I am hunting for my lover’s bones in the desert. Proper women do not splay out their legs, but there’s no sitting side-saddle on a Mongolian camel. My skirts are hitched high up my knees, but I am at an age where men won’t look twice at a bare stretch of calf or pale flash […]

By Claw, By Hand, By Silent Speech

Authors Note: Where Garamond and Agency fonts are used, in italics, they are meant to represent American Sign Language. Where dialogue tags are used, it is meant to indicate orally spoken English. When I decided to study paleontology in college and graduate school, it was because the world of bones is silent. It was because […]

What Gentle Women Dare

Liverpool, Midsummer, 1763 When Satan himself came to Lolly, she didn’t recognize him. She wasn’t on her guard—hadn’t been for years. Why should she be?

Persephone in Hades

Poppies have never been my favorite flowers. Here they bloom all year long, if one can say a year in Hades, where no seasons pass, where summer never fades.

At Face Value

I’ve always had a big imagination. I was the kid who would pretend to be a Power Ranger or come up with intricate backstories for the Mortal Kombat characters via Barbie dolls because surely, they had lives outside of the tournament, right? If I wasn’t playing make believe, I was writing stories in notebooks with […]

But What We Make: The Iterations of Sarah Connor

I love the Terminator saga with a sincerity often reserved for critically acclaimed or independent film. The first two installments are cinematic marvels that inspired genres and resound throughout pop culture: a stunning pair that played the long game, subverting expectations through evolutions in technology and character. But what I love is the story taken […]
