From Stage Door Shadows!

I’m very excited to be a part of this anthology! Because it has such a kick-arse cover, the concept is so interesting, I get to share the TOC with so many wonderful writers, and eMergent Publishing rock. That simple. They rock.


Twenty-six authors trade Tiny Dancer’s California-blessed lyrics for the shadowed recesses of stages large and small in From Stage Door Shadows, a speculative fiction homage to the darkness just beyond the limelight of the entertainment industry.

The stories re-introduce the women Benny Taupin wrote about and Elton John sang about: blue jean baby, LA lady, the band’s seamstress, the music man’s wife and the girl dancing in the sand, along with a stellar cast of musicians, singers, thespians, fans, managers, dancers, DJs, magicians, talent show contestants, stars and has-beens.

From vaudeville to opera, piano bar and street corner, hotel suite and beauty pageant, From Stage Door Shadows is a backstage pass to where dreams of fame, fortune and fulfillment live and die in a heartbeat.



Doesn’t that sound awesome? My story Luminaire is inspired by the line, “Ballerina, you must have seen her”. It’s all about the play between light and shadow, life and death.

The anthology will be launched at Conflux on the 29th of September. It’s now available to preorder from the eMergent Publishing bookstore!
