Hi there.

I guess it’s pretty obvious that I’m not much of a blogger. I accept that.

So welcome to my author page. I am still that, more or less. I utterly failed to promote a publication I had this spring, “No Alphabet Can Spell It,” which you can still find over at Buzzy Mag. I really like this story. It’s a bit wacky.

I’ve also got a story coming out in this month’s Ghost in the Cogs anthology, which is available for preorder and will be out by Halloween. This is my first attempt at steampunk, and I may have taken the title a bit too literally. I wrote it right after returning from a winter-time trip to Iceland, so that is where my story is set. Steam there is a life-saver, though not probably in the way I’ve used it in “Frænka Askja’s Silly Old Story.”

Steam in Iceland, inspiration for the story. Also, Nils Anders
Wik, mascot of the Norwegian American Weekly.

I’m back to fiction a bit, writing lately about sharks and invisible teenagers.

When I’m not writing fiction it’s usually because my life as Editor of the Norwegian American Weekly has consumed my life. For example, I’ve just returned from my first business trip (ever, maybe), to glorious Minot, ND, to sell newspapers at Norsk Høstfest. It was moderately successful. If you’re interested in Norway (and who isn’t, to some degree?), check us out. NAW is also a market for fiction, so some of you should send Norway-related any-genre English-language fiction of 1500 words or fewer to fiction@na-weekly.com.

That’s all for now! I will try to pop in from time to time to update things like publications, but no promises. Know that I love you, dear website visitors, even while I’m away.
