A snap of me talking about monsters at the Florida Writer’s Association 2015 Conference.
“Painted Moonlight,” a surreal and dark mystery, can now be read for free at the J.J. Outré Review. It’s a tale that I’m pretty happy with, though it might not be to all tastes.

Heater can be purchased in electronic versions here, and Vol. 3, No. 5, has a host of other tales besides mine.
