Newly published works! 

 Available now. Published through Playscripts Inc. 

Sally's father is on his death bed, but she just can't bring herself to emotionally confront the impending loss. Who has the time to process grief anyway, when you're wrangling a neurotic mother and sister, fending off an overly-sympathetic boyfriend, and wading through the maze of paperwork and regulations that spring up around death? Along with her wisecracking family, Sally discovers that grief manifests in many different forms, and that every individual must find their own way to navigate the comedic, surreal, and bizarre experience that is sickness and death.

The winner of The Furious Gazelle’s first ever Valentine’s/President’s Day contest goes to Susan Emshwiller, for her story "Dining Alone on Valentine's Day." If you haven’t read her story yet, you should do that now. 

Short story you can read in Independent Ink Magazine. Number 13.  

Short story in Gone Lawn.
