Enjoy!   7 Places to Go to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse You know it’s coming. […]

The First Day of Christmas (Free Flash Fiction Story)

Christmas Diary Entry, Christmas Morning, 1878 Much ado about Reginald. I know he is handsome and smart, not to mention immensely wealthy due to his crafting of intricate watches and toys, but my heart belongs to Humbert. My family would be scandalized if they knew my wild and free Humbert visited me nightly in my bedchambers. […]

NaNoPrepMo

 Only a couple of weeks until NaNoWriMo begins. Coffee shops across the nation will notice a huge uptick in caffeine-infused drink sales. People will work on developing carpal tunnel.

Is the (insert trope) field dead?

KillerCon 2012 Report

Tonya and I attended KillerCon 4, an annual horror-genre convention held in Las Vegas every September. We stayed at the Stratosphere, where the con unfolded over the long weekend. We drove our little “creeper” van, which probably cost us more than a flight, but we enjoyed each other’s company on the trip. Tonya spotted a […]

Trash

 Trash Stella had to give in and wrap the suspended torso in plastic to contain the stench. She paused and smiled. Six weeks later, and she was proud she didn’t give in. “I told you I wasn’t going to take the trash out ever again.” This is my entry for a 55 word or less […]

7 Places to Go to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse

  You know it’s coming. Perhaps Darwin will have the last laugh and a mutant superbug will evolve in the grease on a McDonalds grill in South Dakota.
