Welcome to my blog! Below you’ll find a number of short stories I’ve been working on. All of them are about women. Most of them are about real women I’ve found fascinating and in need of more fanfare than they have. I’m aiming to write something new once a month, so if you like reading short snippets of historical fiction in the time it takes to drink a cup of tea, read on!

Something a little harsher. Mild violence warning. A short story about escapism. This will likely be my last short story published here for a while. I have three incredible writing projects I’m so so excited about working on this year and between those and my day job- I don’t see myself having time for muchContinue reading “Away”

I fell in love with this period in time mostlyContinue reading “The Portrait of a Monarch”

There’s such a beautiful magic that fairy tales evoke and the suspension of disbelief allows for wonderous things to occur (unless you’re theContinue reading “The Rose Petal Princess”
This story comes from a place much closer to home than my previous one and is one that has always captured my imagination. I’m not usually one for ghost stories, but there’s something special about the ghosts in your back yard.
