Glad you asked! You can poke around this blog for earlier drafts and versions of some pieces that I released after first publication by a literary journal, even if they were written much earlier. You can also click on the links below for my recent publications around the globe!
Most of them, they will take you to a link online where you can read the piece without further ado. Some are in print only, if they get picked up by an online journal, I will update the page, or after a time, I will post here on my blog.
