Hooray for the Weird Science Anthology!

I’m the author of “The Applicant: or Virgins, Robot Bears and Other Disasters”, a short story in the Weird Science anthology.

I’m so excited to be included in the anthology.  As a newly published author (this is also my first m/m story) with Torquere, I’m so grateful to be given this chance to join such illustrious and amazing company.

My story centers on a bright young man who thinks he’s interviewing a candidate for a lab assistant position.  I won’t spoil the story, but I will tell you his sexy visitor is not quite what he seems.  And of course, for added chaos, there is a rampaging (okay, it’s a little too small to be really rampaging) teddy bear robot.  My DH coined a special name for the teddy bear – the cuddly juggernaut.

Dr. Forbes Pohle is my favorite type of character to read–someone who’s a little afraid of going forward, but unwilling to let fear keep him from doing what he wants to do.  I felt just like this while writing my short story – a little afraid of submitting to a publisher but unwilling to let such a great opportunity pass me by.  Like Forbes, I think the fear was definitely worth overcoming.
