Upcoming Events

February 20, 2021 -- I will be teaching a workshop on Building Character in Fiction through Writespace. Due to the pandemic, this workshop will be conducted online, which means you can attend from anywhere! This interactive and generative workshop will happen from 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. central time on Saturday, February 20th. Watch this space for more details, including a link to register.

If YOU would like to have me talk with your book group or organization or class about writing -- poetry or fiction -- I'd be happy to! I'm available in person (when we're not in the middle of a pandemic) or via video chat. Contact me and let's work out the details.

What's New in Authorland?

FINALLY the sequel to FINIS. is out! Technically it's a standalone follow-up, but just think of it as another installment in the larger series about Animal Affinities. See above for information on the book launch (online) through Blue Willow Bookshop!

I recently earned Honorable Mention for my short story "Mother" in the Spider Road Press Flash Fiction Contest! What's more, SRP also nominated the story for the Best Small Fiction 2019 award and anthology. Click here to read the story.

I'm now on Instagram! (Who ever thought that would happen?) Find me there as angeliquejamail. Not supremely original, I know, but very easy to find!
