My short story, Nocnitsa, was published in The Molotov Cocktail on 4-9-19

My short story Nocnitsa was published in The Molotov Cocktail in their Issue 10.1 on April 9, 2019!

They called it a “vivid and compelling piece”!

I am getting back into things, finally!

Inspiration – I don’t remember how I happened across this creature. It may have been while researching nightmares during a relentless insomnia bout. But I was struck by its physiology – an ethereal being composed of smoke and a screeching voice. It caused me to imagine a lower physical body of vapor and sounds, the opposite of a physical self. According to folklore, she could shape shift into a raven, but that sounded too generic to me. I had recently become fascinated with the Vampire Finch, a blood sucker, which seemed more fitting for the Nocnitsa. Then I began wondering what specific kind of rage would make one into such a creature. When your body and everyone else fails you. And out of all that came my story of Nocnitsa.
