Message from Writer

I love fantasy fiction, science fiction, historical fiction . . . any kind of fiction, actually. My favorite book is "The Scorpio Races" by Maggie Stiefvater - murderous water horses, what's better than that?

Steelheart: A Review

PROMPT: Book Review Competition 2019

     “I’ve seen Steelheart bleed.” The enigmatic first line of Brandon Sanderson’s teen/young adult novel Steelheart, the first in the Reckoners Trilogy, draws the reader in with unparalleled efficiency, already leaving so many unanswered questions.
     Imagine a dystopian future where the collapse of society was due not to nuclear weapons or environmental destruction, but to people with superpowers. A year after the mysterious celestial body known as Calamity appeared in the sky, a few humans began to...

Forgotten Memories

FREE WRITING

  The stillness of the world after a thunderstorm. The smell of the wet earth. The sun trying to break through the barrier of clouds that keeps its light at bay. The quiet drip of water as it followed gravity’s call, falling from the broken rain gutter. 
   The stillness always brings back the memories. 
   I remember the house on the edge of the field, its brick chimney spitting smoke into the sky.
   I remember the rustling as...

The Creature

FREE WRITING

  A Creature crept through the hall, following a trail that only it could see. Darkness shrouded the corridor, hiding the nightmare that stalked through the king’s house. Malevolent thoughts had surrounded the king in times of late, and extra guards had been posted around the castle; but how could they stop something they couldn’t detect? 
Steeped in ancient magic, this Creature was as invisible as the wind; they only felt it when it had its claws buried in their...

Will No One Ever Come?

FREE WRITING

  Ash falls, staining the city of white marble black. It collects in the streets, covering the bodies littered about like garbage. Death hangs over this place, its presence heavy in the air. Smoke still rises from the burned parts of the city, and its acrid scent mingles with the stench of blood. 
   The massacre here was not deserved. 
   Some will even say it wasn’t intended.     But every sword and axe stroke, every knife slash, every arrow...

My Brother's Knife

PROMPT: Monster Flash Fiction Competition 2018

I dream of the monster again.
            I’m standing on the beach, watching the frothy waves beat at the rocky shore. The wind whips my hair into my eyes and spits sea spray at me.
            There’s a sound then, coming from behind me. A low, rumbling chuckle, one that could almost be human.
            I turn, and my eyes find a dark form crouched over a bloody streak in the sand.
            For a moment, the waves stop pounding...
