Calling All Podcast Listeners…

As a member of the Charlotte Writers Club, you tend to meet a wide variety of incredibly talented writers. It was through this club that I met Landis Wade. Landis is a lawyer and author who is in the process of starting up the Charlotte Readers Podcast, a podcast to feature Charlotte area writers and to allow them to read their work. Can you think of a better way to showcase some local talent? I can’t.

The podcast is set to air in the beginning of October and will feature a different author each week. I am slated for the Halloween Edition! That episode will feature me reading 3 of my already published short horror stories. Hopefully hearing them out loud will provide a great media for these stories to come across.

So, how can you listen?

Well episode 1 is available NOW. Just check out iTunes and search for Charlotte Readers Podcast. It features an introduction to season 1 and all the authors that will appear as well as features Landis Wade himself reading one of his published stories.

Be sure to also check out the website which is currently under construction but will be available soon. Click on the link below

Thanks again and I hope you check out the Podcast. There are some incredibly talented authors out there right in our neighborhood.

As always thanks for reading (and I guess listening to) my work


Another One…

Finally, I can make the announcement. My story “Toxoplasmosis” will be published in the next issue of Sanitarium Magazine in late September. Sanitarium Magazine is the best sort of magazine – from an independent publishing house and dedicated to horror. What more could you want, especially with Halloween rolling around the corner. The magazine will be available through Amazon on Kindle. I will of course make another post when it goes live.

A little about the story…

Toxoplasmosis was written for a class where we focused on finding our own fears and using them. I personally hate the thought of being eaten alive. I also hate the thought of losing control or being controlled by someone/something else. What better way to use these fears than a parasite story. Toxoplasmosis does take a little different spin on your typical parasite horror story. It also allowed me to use what I am best at…body horror and using my career as a veterinarian. The story also happens to be the longest short story I have completed to date – about 5700 words.

So be on the lookout for the story.

Also be on the lookout for some exciting news regarding Podcasts and my recording debut.

As always, thank you for reading my work.
