Read “To Dr. Von Lupe, Concerning the Volcano” on Mad Scientist Journal

My short story “To Dr. Von Lupe, Concerning the Volcano” is now live on Mad Scientist Journal’s website, accompanied by art by Shannon Legler.


Follow the story of captive scientist, Elizabeth Chu, which started last time in “To Dr. Von Lupe, Concerning the Kraken”, and learn the subtle but important differences between marine biology and volcanology.


Fundraising for the Night of Writing Dangerously

I have participated in National Novel Writing Month (Nanowrimo) for the past three years, and it has been a wonderful experience every time, whether I managed to complete the challenge or not (my record is currently 2 out of 3). And being fortunate enough to live in the Bay Area, I was able last year to attend the Night of Writing Dangerously, an all-night Nanowrimo event in San Francisco. It was a wonderful opportunity to be in a room with that many writers and that much creative energy, and I would love to be able to repeat that experience this year.

I am currently fundraising for Nanowrimo’s youth writing programs in order to secure my ticket to the Night of Writing Dangerously. If anyone could please consider donating in my name to their cause, I would greatly appreciate the help and the chance to participate again. Any amount is welcome and I would be very grateful. Thank you, and I would love to hear about anyone else’s Nanowrimo experiences!
