Micah Grey has had an interesting journey over the past few years. I first dreamt up Micah in 2007 and started a book with the character 10 years older in 2008. At the end of 2009, I was having trouble with it, so I decided to write a “short story” of Micah as a teen joining the circus.

I recently sold a paranormal sci-fi story, ‘Pawprints in the Aeolian Dust’, to Sci Phi Journal. I’m really happy this one’s found a home, as it’s especially close to my heart. All stories are personal, but sometimes one comes along and carves itself from your very soul…

Sci Phi Journal are a pretty unique publication. With their clever blend of science fiction and real philosophy, they’re an intentionally thought-provoking read, and have published some terrific stories to date. Every story raises specific questions, and while this is true of much science fiction, it’s rare to see these questions tackled directly. Sci Phi are a fairly new magazine, and I think they’ve found a niche that serves them and their readers well.

I’m really looking forward to being a part of it!
