I look over the order and click “confirm.” Rocking back in my chair, I can’t help but feel sick. I’ve never ordered groceries online before. Why would I, with at least five grocery chains within ten miles of my home and a personally owned market two blocks away? I was on my way out, keys … Continue reading Flash Fiction Saturday: The Rise of Agoraphobia
There is no knock. No admonition. The strike is sudden, swift. And the world is blown and thrown into a bleak and glacial chaos. The howling and yowling grates, a dissonant screeching that will not abate, while tiny specks bite like serrated blades. Every fleck a small slice that cuts to the core.

I opted to delve into her as she is on the cover … Continue reading Flash Fiction Saturday- Beowulf: The Midgard Horrors Part 7
I love Halloween. No, even more than that. I bloody love Halloween. Not only does it mean that we’re properly into Autumn (or “Fall” for all of you lovely colonial types), but to a horror writer and fan of horror in general, it’s the perfect time of the year. For one thing, the evenings drawing … Continue reading Fear the Reaper – with Briana Robertson
If you didn't get to attend SSP's Unhallowed Halloween event, I'm bringing part of the fun to you. As both a writer and an artist, I thought it would be fun to showcase the process of crafting a book over, from its early sketches to the final product. Now that Beowulf: The Midgard Epic has … Continue reading Transformation of Art
Sorry for the late post, I know Oct. is nearly over, and I have yet to post this Month. So what should I post about that is spooky? Well, how about my encounter with a shadow person growing up most of my life. Seriously, a shadow person followed my family around every time we moved! … Continue reading Better late than never!
