So the timing on this one worked out perfectly. Here’s a flash excerpt from The Brother We Share, due out 9/1. I put my whole heart into this, into that entire book. Huge thanks to J. Archer Avary over at Sledgehammer Lit for seeing something in this one. And if you liked this, you might like the book too. Pre-orders are available.
I’m happy-weepy right now because THE BROTHER WE SHARE, my what-could-have-been novel about suicide, grief, recovery, and family, is going to be published by Alien Buddha Press. I signed the contract yesterday. I’m so thankful, so happy for this and to even still be here. Wow. 🙏❤️

This CNF is one of the hardest things I’ve written, but I’m glad I did. This is for Chuck Yacullo. I never got to say this, so: Thank you for being there, Chuck. I love you.
Here’s my single sentence flash on coming into a queer enby identity through shifting haircuts over the years & fighting dogma & norms; the accompanying art by Jay Baker is incredible, & huge thanks to Jason Thayer & Complete Sentence for taking this!
Woke up to a super kind acceptance from J. Archer Avary over at Sledgehammer Lit! This is a flash, but it’s also a straight up excerpt from The Brother We Share, so this feels especially fantastic. Encouraging to see that this story is already resonating. This piece drops 6/14!
So stoked about the acceptance I just got from Jason Thayer over at Complete Sentence, accepted 28 minutes after I submitted! 😱 I seriously can’t wait to share my single sentence queer flash “All the Haircuts You Used to Have” with all of you. 😊
A story in two parts:
I’ve got fiction in here! It’s a piece about nostalgia and sexuality and lost love, and I’m really proud of it. Guest appearances by Angel Olsen, Q101, Gorillaz, and Chicago’s el.
