  • Crystall Ball

    The crystal ball sat on a dust filled shelf in a far corner of the attic, covered in cobwebs. The house had long been abandoned and claimed by time. Throughout the main house, partially disintegrated wallpaper clung to the walls in desperation. Spider webs, some abandoned and some inhabited by...
  • Hate or Fear?

    Hate lives. Hate consumes. Hate mesmerizes. Hate deceives. Hate is a shapeshifter. Hate destroys. Hate is fear. Fear of the unknown. Fear of the perceived danger. Fear of being wrong. Fear of change. Fear of being left out. Fear of being different. Fear of not being in control. True leaders shine...

    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 foreveras pleas for help were swallowed in the tempest.

  • Turning Around the Vitriol One Book at a Time

    Most of us are aware of an event that happened at a race when a driver named Brandon won and the crowd was chanting something. The announcer mistook what the crowd was saying.

    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

  • 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...
