My 2020 List of Publications

Hiya readers!

This year has been chaotic at the best of times and a slow burn at the worst. I’ve spent much of this year in quarantine applying for gigs, restructuring behind-the-scenes, volunteering, taking online classes, and teaching game writing when I can.


“Feasting on Twilight after Dark”, for DEATH IS NOT THE END, a Geist 2nd Edition anthology, 2020, Onyx Path Publishing/Paradox Interactive

“Scritch, Scratch”, for HAUNTING SHADOWS, a Wraith the Oblivion 20th Anniversary Edition anthology, 2020, Onyx Path Publishing/Paradox Interactive

Both of these stories are supposed to be coming out soon-ish. I received word that they were back on the schedule, but there have been delays due to the pandemic.

“Mythica D’Argent: Treatise Pertaining to the Mysterious of Silver”, THE DAGON COLLECTION, PS Publishing

“From an Honest Sister, to a Neglected Daughter”, SISTERHOOD: DARK TALES AND SECRET MYSTERIES, Chaosium Publishing


For games, I had three interactive fiction pieces published this year in addition to my regular RPG work–two of which were for a middle grade readership!

The Case of the Multiplying Bunnies, 2020, Wonder Stories app

The Case of the Popped Balloons, 2020, Wonder Stories app

Underwater Memories (with music), 2020, Sub-Q Magazine

DARK ERAS 2, Chronicles of Darkness, 2020, Onyx Path Publishing/Paradox Interactive (Lead Developer)

CONTAGION CHRONICLE, Chronicles of Darkness, 2020, Onyx Path Publishing/Paradox Interactive

This year is also bittersweet. After many years, I’m winding down my work with Onyx Path Publishing and am looking forward to the next chapter and new opportunities for my career.

Want to Interview or Hire Me? Send Fan Mail?

Would you like to hire me? Because my projects and manuscripts are in flux, I am always open to discussing new opportunities with publishers and studios. As a full-time writer, I spend a portion of my time seeking new gigs–so don’t be afraid to reach out. If you’re interested, please e-mail me via my Contact Page. I typically reply to work-related e-mails within one-to-two business days.

Want an interview? If you’d like to interview me or request a guest blog post, please connect with me via the contact page, too. Due to time constraints and other communicative concerns, I typically don’t follow up on requests via social media.

Keen on sending fan mail? I am also happy to engage with readers and fans. Please note that I am unable to reply satisfactorily to certain types of queries related to the companies I work for due to the agreements I typically sign. If you have a question about a TV show or a line of books, the best way to get your answer is to contact the studio or publisher directly.
