Can Sarah Chavous give the Earth a puncher’s chance in an interplanetary war?
I recently had a science fiction piece, “Larissa is Coming“, appear in Twister Sister Lit Mag. The story concerns Sarah Chavous, an astronaut sent beyond Mars on a dangerous mission. Extraterrestrials within Neptune have decided to destroy mankind and have launched one of Neptune’s smaller moons at the Earth. As the collision would devastate our planet, Sarah has been tasked with stopping the weaponized moon.
The “Neptunians” live within a massive ocean of liquid diamond that exists within Neptune. These extraterrestrials are something of a local “exterminator”. The Neptunians systemically destroy any rival intelligent life that develops elsewhere in our solar system.

Fleeing to Mexico isn’t nearly as easy as you’d think, especially when you sleep at the Rum Cherry Motel.
“Sleeping at the Rum Cherry Motel” falls somewhere between The Twilight Zone and Tales from the Crypt. Todd McHugh is on the run from the law in my recent piece appearing in Twister Sister Lig Mag‘s “Payback’s a Bitch” issue. Todd is hoping to slip away to Mexico after murdering his wife, and he’s stopped for a few hours of sleep at the Rum Cherry Motel. Click the image below to see if Todd evades justice and melts away into the Mexican backcountry.
Pluto is five billion kilometers from Earth. Is that halfway to heaven? The Jurrjens family would like to think so.
I recently had a science fiction piece appear on Backhand Stories. I wrote “Five Billion Kilometers Closer to Heaven” in early September of 2016. Just before I started to write this particular story, I had read several pieces of news regarding the New Horizons space probe. New Horizons had recently passed by Pluto and Charon, revealing a great amount about each that had previously been unknown. The landscapes on Pluto are absolutely amazing. Cryovolcanoes. Chaos terrain. Frozen lakes of liquid nitrogen. Pluto is a science fiction gold mine.
