Short Stories

I’ve had over twenty-five short stories published in various print and on-line magazines and anthologies, most of them science fiction or fantasy in nature.

Here are links to the stories that are currently still available online to read (or listen to in audio). Enjoy the read and be sure to let me know what you think.

A Speck in the Universe, Sci-fi and the first story I ever had published. Contains sexual content.

Traveling by Petroglyph, Sci-fi flash piece and first professional sale.

Rites of Passage, Fantasy flash piece.

The Derby, Sci-fi that was short-listed for the Sir Julius Vogel Awards.

Ripley Patton lives in a 22-foot camper in the woods of Southern Illinois with a cat named Lemmy. Her two young adult children, a daughter and a son, are her favorite people. When Ripley's not out exploring nature and getting her hands dirty, she's usually reading or writing a book.
