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!
