Short fiction

I love creating sensory experiences within my stories, and allowing the reader to focus in on the smallest, most mundane details. I often write about humans connecting with each other in weird ways or discovering strengths about themselves they didn't know they had. Here are a few stories I've written, viewable exclusively on my Patreon page.

Marta (Part 1)

It wasn’t until she was getting off the bus that I realized it was her. The way she delicately walked on her toes, rarely dropping a heel to the ground, was the biggest giveaway; but when she reached into her pocket and pulled out a package of cinnamon stick gum, I knew for sure. Most people opt for those minty squares you pop out of a metallic pack like birth control pills. But not Marta; she preferred the stale shit.

I ran into an old friend last night...

I was having a drink at the bar next to my favorite laundromat while waiting for my wash to finish, when I noticed her sitting at the barstool next to mine. We were both absorbed in our phones, pretty oblivious to the commotion around us until I felt something touch my foot. An immaculate bright blue Coach purse landed on the ground below me and without hesitation, I picked it up.
