Published in Moebius Magazine

I am immensely proud of my short-story, “London Bound,” and thankful to my alma mater California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) for publishing it in their literary magazine, but I must firstly admit that my official debut publication has a bittersweet edge to it. Although this story is a work of fiction it is inspired and based on the very real events and experiences that occurred during the July 7, 2005 terrorist attacks in London. While on one of my backpacking excursions through Europe I returned via train from Paris to London with the intention of taking the Tube that day, only to find all the stations closed, transportation down, and emergency broadcasts on the radio. My perspective remains a small sliver of the events that unfolded that day, but nonetheless it evolved into something that I had to put down into words even if the tragedy itself was something more felt than understood. You can read my short-story “London Bound” or view the entire Moebius Magazine. Thank you.
