The One Girl

As a fan of genre/pulp films, I love them but they don’t always love me back. It’s genuinely frustrating to see flat characterizations of women in ensemble action films, especially when they're overly idealized and apparently free of anything resembling human flaws.

Anyway, my rant-turned-flash-fiction published with Electric Spec, “The One Girl,” is out today! Thank you to the editors for working with me on this one, particularly Lesley L. Smith and Grayson Towler!
