Her fabulist fiction, self-indulgent essays, and occasional rogue poem appear in Pussy Magic, Luna Station Quarterly, Diabolical Plots, Zizzle Literary, mutiny!, Runestone Literary Journal, and other places.
"Rinse Cycle," "Portrait of a Young Prostitute," and "august and september." Atlantis magazine, Issue 78. Nonfiction and poetry.
