Dear pond readers, while you may know that I’m an author because you read this eclectic blog dedicated to my creativity (bless you for that!), did you know that I’ve published fiction and prose under my pseudonym, E.A. Lawrence? I have! You can see an author interview that I got to do with Amber Unabridged.

In June 2021, a new E.A. Lawrence science fiction story was published by Sci Phi Journal in a special issue about xeno-anthropology which is available to download as a PDF. I am incredibly excited about this development because this story is extra special to me. If you would like to read something that is a tender part of my heart, here is the link: Silica Field Study SOP. To celebrate, here is a particular favorite frog photo of mine.

You can read my short story, “Valentine,” here: Breath and Shadow Magazine, Summer 2015, Volume 12, Issue 13.  

My first E.A. Lawrence publication in a book is a short story entitled “Kitsune Tea” that appears in the anthology ROAR Volume 7 edited by Mary E. Lowd. If you like, you can buy this book here: ROAR Volume 7 and I will get a small advertising fee. This anthology features short, fantastic stories about legendary creatures. My contribution stars a kitsune, a magical fox being, and I am inordinately proud of her story; I hope that you enjoy it, too.

On August 31st 2020, my E.A. Lawrence short story entitled “Smithsonian Soldiers” is now available to read in the Volume 15, Issue 3, August 31, 2020  issue of ElectricSpec. I could not be more excited about this story coming to press and appearing in this dynamic magazine. If you’re curious to know more about where this idea came from and my process, check out my post on the ElectricSpec editor blog. Who knew that a nightmare I had in 2016 involving mutant koalas, jetpacks, and geese could result in such a cool story? I hope that you enjoy reading “Smithsonian Soldiers.” Here’s a goose that helped inspire one of my favorite parts of the story:
