Short Story: Owner of the Bank of Souls

Meg is dying–fast. There’s only one way for her boyfriend to save her. The Bank of Souls. “Tomorrow it’ll come and tomorrow she’ll be dead!” Danner stood over my cot, all dark and shadowy, though the fireplace crackling behind him did cast light on one thing—his shining green eyes. Or I guess that’s two thingsContinue reading “Short Story: Owner of the Bank of Souls”

Three espresso shotsContinue reading “Update! Where I’ve been and What’s Next”

But I have some serious frienemies (friend/enemies), these Thing 1, Thing 2, and Thing 3’s: my precious children. I adore them. They’re far more important than writing, but my sleep deprivationContinue reading “Withered writing hand, but I’ll extend it anyway”
