So that was very normal, its what came the next week that truly amazed and destroyed me all at once. January 2nd… Calastan, my first novella, hit the top 100 in 5 … Read More Emptier than its ever been…

Organization

Letting go

I believe as humans its in our nature to hold on to as much as we can. We hoard things, emotions, and people into our little worlds to fulfill us. When we have to let there is a plethora of emotions and many are just selfish. I talk about this because yesterday I watched my youngest child take an oath to serve our country … Read More Letting go

Nevermore…

 And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;     And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon’s that is dreaming,     And the lamp-light o’er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor; And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor             Shall be lifted—nevermore! – … Read More Nevermore…

Why I write…

Why do you write? This is a question I’ve been asked quite a bit over time. My only answer is because I have to. The words are there and they need to said, written.  Many times the words come to me and fight with me to put pen to paper, or even in todays world finger to screen. Writing for me is very natural … Read More Why I write…
