We Are All Stardust: Part 1

THERE IT WAS. The perfect house. I scrolled through the photographs on Zillow once, twice, three times. Four bedrooms, three baths, in a great school district, and priced within our budget. It was perfect. I texted my wife. Found one. Let's go see it this afternoon. She emojiied a thumbs up. I called the realtor,... Continue Reading →

We Are All Stardust

Author's Note Okay, so I may have mentioned that sometimes I really get into a book. Well, it happened again. I read Soul Tracing: Taboo for a romance book club recently, and boy, did it upset me. I have this thing where I need the books I read to end on a good note. Happy.... Continue Reading →

I love WordPress. Every time I think I'm at loss on things to blog about, I stumble onto something that gets me thinking... and writing. Today it's WWW Wednesday.  The three Ws stand for: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next? Let's play! What... Continue Reading →

At a Party

MAGGIE LEANED AGAINST the wall, the obligatory red Solo cup of warm beer in hand. She had no intention of drinking it. It was a prop, to fend off obnoxious Wall Street boys. Why aren't you drinking, baby? Maggie fought the urge to smile. The funny thing was they thought they were being subtle. Across... Continue Reading →

After Work

  JANE TOUCHED HER neck, checking her pulse. Third time around the lake, and she was keeping steady at 98 bpm. How frustrating.  "Push it, girl," she muttered out loud. "You want a skinny ass? Push it. Push it, dammit!" It didn't work. She didn't feel like pushing it, whether she should or not. Maintaining... Continue Reading →

Ça, c’est très français.

THE WAITER CAME over the moment she sat down. "Bonsoir, madamoiselle." He assisted with her chair and napkin. "Voulez-vous boire quelque chose?" She wished he could give her a minute to settle. It took courage for a single young woman to eat out alone in Paris. "Oui... une tasse d'eau, si'l vous plait, san gas."... Continue Reading →

203 Blog Posts

I interrupt our regularly scheduled programming for a brief announcement. I've reached a milestone! Two hundred and three blog posts. Whoo-Hoo! That's a lot. I may need to sit down for a moment. Also, it's now time for me to re-establish that I actually have a book for sale on Amazon. If you've enjoyed my... Continue Reading →

Mysterious Me

The lovely and beguiling RayNotBradbury has a new challenge out this week. I found ‘Mysterious Me’ to be the most compelling. You woke up on the street with the lost memory (amnesia). What would you do? _____ * _____ * _____ * _____ * _____ MY HEAD HURTS. It's a dull, pounding kind of pain. I touch... Continue Reading →

Bigfoot: A Romance

I'D SEEN SOME messed up people in my time, but nothing like the woman curled up in the corner of the interview room. She was covered with dirt and her hair looked like a bird's nest... no, wait, that was a bird's nest in her hair... her arms were wrapped around her knees as she... Continue Reading →
