I’m extremely proud to have my work in the May 2012 issue of Word Riot.
I’ve thanked Fiction Editor Kevin O’Cuinn on this blog before, but I can’t say it enough. His editorial support was tremendous and the final piece, Flame, has the marks of his deft guidance.
For me personally, some pieces are watermarks in my brief career as a short story writer. PANK was one, and now this.
All love traffic is appreciated.

Word Riot, people. WORD RIOT.
I’m pinching myself…walking around in a daze. I feel elated.
Word Riot’s Fiction Editor, Kevin O’Cuinn, has provided crucial support and encouragement. Without him, this achievement would not be possible.
Kevin has been patient with my submissions (there have been many) and he’s provided the kind of tough-love all writers need from great editors. His guidance – and scalpel cuts – have been a master class in editing. I do my best to use his lessons on each new piece of fiction I craft.
All I can say is editor, friend and trusted mentor only begin to describe how highly I think of him.
The piece Word Riot accepted is called Flame. It’s a flash fiction work, and as soon as I find out which issue it will appear in, I will let you all know.
