SHORT STORIES AND ANTHOLOGIES
I turned fifteen the year the desert swallowed my brother. I should have gone first, but Mamá said that I looked too young, too skinny—no one would hire a boy my size. Although I possessed the sharper wit and even spoke a little English, my wiry build went against me. Time wasn’t our friend and we couldn’t wait for me to attain Jorge’s girth ...
A very teeny horror story.

My short story, "Naked the Night Sings," is merely one of the many fine stories featured in Manifesto: UF, edited by Tim Marquitz and Tyson Mauermann, Angelic Knight Press, 2013.
From angels to vampires, dragons to wizards, Manifesto brings together twenty-three stories full of action, snark, and unadulterated badassery.
Featuring stories from Lucy A. Snyder, Jeff Salyards, William Meikle, Teresa Frohock, Zachary Jernigan, Betsy Dornbusch, Kirk Dougal, Karina Fabian, Adam Millard, Timothy Baker, Ryan Lawler, Andrew Moczulski, R.L. Treadway, Abhinav Jain, TSP Sweeney, Nickolas Sharps, Jonathan Pine, Kenny Soward, Joshua S. Hill, Jake Elliot, Lincoln Crisler, J.M. Martin, and Wilson Geiger.
The time has come to make a statement, to define a genre. This is our manifesto.
This was another story, whose title was attention-grabbing, plus it was written by Teresa Frohock and so I was assured of two things; elegant prose and dark settings. Not only does the author do her best in creating a rich, dark atmosphere but she also goes about creating admirable characters who leave you hooked onto the story. Another fine dark gem from an author who is fast becoming a solid favorite of mine. --Mihir Wanchoo, Fantasy Book Critic
From Teresa Frohock’s Naked the Night Sings, a hauntingly beautiful and unnerving story of the coming apocalypse, to Jeff Salyards’s sexually-charged Beneath a Scalding Moon, which has a little wordplay on the term “cougar,” to Zachary Jernigan’s I’m an Animal, You’re an Animal Too, which is amusing with its in-jokes and cameos, the stories in this collection are endlessly entertaining and full of creativity. -- Ria, Bibliotropic
Naked the Night Sings by Teresa Frohock, now, puts some real elements of horror into the story of a musician whose bargain is far more complicated than he suspects. It has a wonderful female character in opposition to her protagonist, and the writing at the sentence level is mesmerizing. -- Paul Weimer, SF Signal

SERIAL HORROR NOVEL / THE WINSTON-SALEM WRITERS
Rady / Chapter 1 -- Rady is a serial horror novel that I wrote in conjunction with members of the Winston-Salem Writers. I wrote chapter one to kick the novel off and other members put their own spin on the tale as they continued the story. The project was loads of fun and the story took some really unexpected turns.
