Alone and Other Flash Fiction out now

My new prose book, Alone and Other Flash Fiction, is now available on Amazon as a kindle e-book.

Alone and Other Flash Fiction is a collection of short short stories about aloneness and loneliness. The title piece is about a woman who is lonely for so many things in her life but the story ultimately surprises the reader with her honesty.


What To Believe: poems (2017)

Freshly published. My latest collection of poetry is now available as a paperback at

Jill Chan’s sixth book of poetry is a selection of her best work with the theme of faith and belief. The sequence “What To Believe,” an 18-part tour de force, is filled with uncanny precision and beautiful language. It asks more than answers, seeks more than finds:


how we steal

the most empty places


just to be sure

of our honesty

Now It Is Done

The year has passed quickly.
Now it is done,

How have we let our lives pass,
the body of our nights
lies like days dying
in the dark?
