Member Since

I am a writer and student, and I recently graduated with my M.A. in English. My work has been published in various journals, including Oak Bend Review, Flash Fiction World, Linguistic Erosion, Flashes in the Dark, Separate Worlds, Every Day Fiction, and Pop Culture Review.

I truly enjoy writing stories with magic realism, as well as stories that blur the boundaries of reality.

Pivot - my first and currently only novel - is on Amazon Kindle. It has won 3 awards: It was a finalist for the Next Generation Indie Awards, a Winner of the Indie Reader Discovery Awards, and a winner of the eLit Awards.

Pivot also made IndieReader's Best Books of 2014: http://indiereader.com/2014/12/irs-be...

"Brutal and Poetic at the same time...
Seems like a contradiction, but somehow it works.
The story is bleak, dark, bloody but also filled with beautiful descriptions of the countryside, the desert, the people in the book. The colorful Judge is some..." Read more of this review »

This is my first Dickens novel to read, and I actually really liked it. Everything came together, and it was, ultimately, a very heartwarming tale. The variety of characters was fantastic, and there were many visuals that stuck with me. I do recommen ...more

While reading this book, I was reminded of something that Daniel Tosh said in one of his stand ups: "You'll learn that I don't do segues. Other comics are like, 'I was at the mall the other day...' No you weren't! Shut up and do your joke." I felt, t ...more

“And in this simple moment, I suddenly began to wonder if perhaps we shake hands with God in agreement to the lives we live, before we are ever born.”
L.C. Barlow, Pivot

“They expect from me a flicker, and I give them stars.”
L.C. Barlow, Pivot

There are no such things as angels, I thought to myself as I walked that path. There is only Cyrus, those who follow him, and those who sneak around him. Everything is a backwards dealing, a script where errors are miracles, and corrections are only a bullet away.

As for good works, they are dangerous and impossible. Only the likes of demons can successfully complete them, and they know not wholly what they do.

L.C. Barlow, Pivot

“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
Dr. Seuss

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

“Reader, suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.”
Mark Twain

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
Eleanor Roosevelt, This is My Story

“When looking for a life partner, my advice to women is date all of them: the bad boys, the cool boys, the commitment-phobic boys, the crazy boys. But do not marry them. The things that make the bad boys sexy do not make them good husbands. When it comes time to settle down, find someone who wants an equal partner. Someone who thinks women should be smart, opinionated and ambitious. Someone who values fairness and expects or, even better, wants to do his share in the home. These men exist and, trust me, over time, nothing is sexier.”
Sheryl Sandberg, Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead
