  • Tempest

    She stood alone as the tempest swirled around her. Wind and waves whipped against the bow, relentless. Angry seas, in ebony, stretched out it seemed forever as pleas for help were swallowed in the tempest. Merciless rain, icy spears, struck unprotected skin. The tempest wails echoed and pierced her...

  • Publishing a Children's Book

    This will be for things I've found when publishing my children's book. I'm using Amazon's CreateSpace. I've been told it's cheaper and the quality is good. From what I see of my own proof copy, the quality is the same as other children's books so it's a good choice for me. Images come out much da...
  • Ethereal Light

    Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil for you are with me. For those I left behind, fear not for it is but just a moment in time til you see me again. Though your lives will fill the years with memories do not despair that I am not with thee    
  • In the Monster - A Horror Writer's Perspective

    As a non-violent person, it's sort of funny that I gravitate towards horror stories, movies and writing. I just like to go where the dark things are and explore that realm to see what I can bring into the light, and see what other writers have created. It's just so interesting to go places and see ...

  • A Muse by any Other Name

    Yeah, ok, play on words. Maybe you're groaning, screaming at the monitor "How could she!!". I could because it's before 6am and at only 1/4 cup of my hazelnut coffee so it sounded like a good title to me. :P I've been musing about muses. I've heard people talk about them like they are real beings...
  • Innocence by Dean Koontz

    I received Dean Koontz's Innocence as a gift and loved it! I almost couldn't put it down. This was so well written that it played out beautifully in my mind. The scenes were painted in my mind as real as though I was actually there. The characters were alive. From the very start, I was there with th...

  • Edwina C. Geach

    I was looking for some lesser known authors to share and the first one I find interesting is Edwina C. Geach (b. Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 1870; d. New South Wales, 25 December 1905). How sad she died on Christmas. Of note, and equally sadder still is this quote from the linked blogspot: [q...
