Ghost Stories

I once lived in a haunted house ... To be fair, I didn't own the house. I was staying with family, living in a spare bedroom for a couple of months between jobs / apartments and while simultaneously working and going to college. I wouldn't say that this ghost was malevolent. I'd classify it as... Continue Reading →

Distracted

Good evening! I hope everyone is doing well. I've gotten sucked into a super huge problem. Okay, that's overly dramatic. It's only super huge in my mind, and it's only a problem because I'm thinking about it. But, but, but ... I'm sucked into the numbers game on Kindle Vella. I've got two serials published...

Isekai and Portal Fantasy

Good morning and welcome to the weekend!!! I recently came across a word that I didn't know: Isekai. I had to look it up, and turns out it's a Japanese genre of Portal Fantasy that revolves around a person (or people) who are transported to and have to survive in another world. This could be...

Snow, Hot Tea, & Writing

Good morning! It's snowing here on the southern plains and even though the temperatures are supposed to be back up into the sixties by the weekend I'm enjoying the blustery gray outside! On a morning like this there's nothing better than curling up in my thickest, fuzziest pair of socks with a steaming mug of... Continue Reading →

The Amethyst Dragon

Leah was bored.  She chewed on her fingernail absently, watching as the lone customer sat at the counter leafing through an actual, old-fashioned newspaper.  It had gigantic pages covered in black ink and they rustled as he turned them.  It was archaic.  He couldn’t even see his coffee cup, hidden as it was beneath the...

A New Project

Good evening! Have you ever had an idea that has bounced around in your mind for years and years? I have, and tonight I'm pleased to annouce that I've finally brought it to fruition! What if you had a do-over? A chance to fix that one mistake or regret? Welcome to THE AFTERLIFE BAR AND... Continue Reading →

Visitation

Lyssa moved through the fog like a silent wraith, her long curls flowing down her back and her heart full of anticipation.  She wasn’t supposed to be in the human lands but she simply had to get another glimpse of him.  He had filled her thoughts for days now, since her last journey here.  She...

Decisions … and a rewrite

Good morning!  I just finished my 30 minutes of morning meditation (I literally could not get through the day if I didn’t meditate every morning) and I realize that I’ve got a decision to make.   I’ve got to rewrite episode one of my Kindle Vella story, Return To Atlantis.   Ha ha I know - that’s...

Wind

Good evening!  It’s been a windy day on the southern plains, and by that I mean windier than usual!  We’ve had sustained winds of near 50 miles per hour for most of the day, with gusts even stronger.   Earlier as I was driving, a solid sheet of leaves skittered down the road towards me, completely...

Death

Good afternoon! As I write this post, autumn is in mid-swing and the world outside my window seems locked in a battle between summer and winter. Two days ago the temperature was in the seventies and I was wearing short sleeves; today it's a winter coat and hat and the sky overhead is threatening rain.... Continue Reading →
