Where to begin...

I'm a writer, at least I like to think so.
I was inspired when I met Marc Brown (the creator of "Arthur"--no, not the Dudley Moore version) at a young author's convention and after that I tried to write down any idea I had...and I continue to do so.

Release Me Chapter 7- Next to You


I carefully stepped out of my second period class and checked if the William express was around. It was not, so I walked down the hall in my search for Anna. I had thought about asking her to go to the last game of the regular season. Since our school was out of the running for state I had to wonder if it would only be the two of us, the pep band and the cheerleaders. It would be cold, as it it usually became that time of year…except when I was next to Anna.

Release Me Chapter 4- I Can Hear Music


The Den was a huge and recessed room with a large couch with a television on the wall. The pool table was a full-sized unit. I wondered how they got it into the house and into this room. The air hockey table was just as new looking and probably twice as heavy.
I admit I am terrible at pool. Anna went over the rules a little bit and we played one game before shifting over to air hockey.

Release Me Chapter 3- Wouldn’t It Be Nice


I met up with Anna in the parking lot. I had walked past a few car and and trucks until I came upon a small car with Alabama plates and assumed it was hers. Anna walked up to me with a young girl skipping along behind her.

Release Me Chapter 1-Impulsive


The days before she died was all the time that I really knew the real Anna Renee Joel. She was very sweet; always helpful and polite to me and that kindness made me feel threatened because whenever she talked to me my guard would come down and I was pretty much hypnotized. She could read the directions for soup from the back of a can and it would have sounded like poetry in motion.

When You Close Your Eyes-Chapter 6-High Road


“You ditched the LAN party, man.”
“How late were you up?”
“Still haven’t gone to bed yet,” Dan replied as he opened a bottle of Dr. Pepper, and I mean a two-liter, and took several gulps.
“Who won the death match?”
“One does not just ‘win’ a death match. You have to have the drive, the direction, and to not fall asleep and lay your head on the keyboard.”
“Who was the first to go down?”

Seth! How are you?

It’s You!

It’s me.

I’m so happy to see you again, Elise.

Me too, Seth. How was your day?

“When You Close Your Eyes” Chapter 4 “Color of Your Smile”


I started working at a pizza place early in my senior year, mostly on the phones as the manager thought my voice was calming when it had to be and authoritative the rest of the time. Callers usually identified me as “ma’am or “girl’ and I didn’t think anything of it, just simply took the orders and called them out to the prep area. I enjoyed it. It got me out of the house and—as my father would say—“put that work ethic in ya’”.

You seem like my type.

Thank you.

What's your favorite food?


I love sushi too! Do you eat it often?

Not too often as it can get kind of pricey

That's true... How do you feel about pizza though?

Pizza is the miracle food from the hand of God himself.

Freebie’s for this week on Amazon

I skipped a freebie week, so we’re once again doing a double up:

The e-books for: “Are You Happy” and “Desert Rose” will be free for this week from Amazon.

Are You Happy” is kind of a depressing delve into the madness mind of Stephen Thomas and his “guardians’: the Elvin princess Ayle and a grim reaper-in-training who never makes it, “Skully”. The reader is asked to ponder if they’re a part of Stephen’s broken psyche or if they indeed exist.

Free ebooks for the first week of June

I am setting the “the twins’ as free on Amazon for the first week in June.

“A Change Would Do You Good” and “the best damn thing” were written at about the same time and both take place in Alabama. “Change” is set on the shores of Orange Beach while Prattville hosts the plotline for “tbdt”. Both are bitter stories…but one ends on a happy note that has allowed me to try to think of a follow-up story.

Both will be available to free for Kindle on 6/2/2023 to 6/5/2023.

Her eyes so bright, they sparkle into space
The rabbit in the moon bows before the image that comes to be
Upon the splendor of our HIGH SCHOOL Senpai, Cherry Jubilee

“I Don’t Like You” Chapter 9 “ Darkness Keeps Chasing Me”

Every now and then
The darkness tries to chase me
And my legs are getting tired of running
Ohh, please don't,
Please don't let it get to me
Ohhh, I don't want to give up that easily
But the darkness keeps chasing me, me

Hello, Elise

Hello, Seth!

Sorry about the weeks going by

It's alright! No worries.

How are you?

I'm doing okay. Thanks for asking.

Going steampunk now?


“Love Bombing” Chapter 1 “Out of the Blue”


When I was younger, I didn’t really think about love. I didn’t think about liking anyone. I was completely ignorant to Valentine’s Day and the barrage of cards and gifts I’d receive. When one is in sixth grade, that’s the farthest thing from your mind. You care about playing sports, reading, or listening to music until either the tape disintegrates, or the batteries die. Either way, one remains oblivious to everything having to do with guys.

I’m On The Outside: Chapter 2 “Take It” (starter)


"Matthew Modine Tracker!"
My father had used my middle name--this wasn't going to be good.
"Where were you?"
Eons before GPS and cell phones, parents would tell their kids to be home at such and such times. They'd even buy them a watch--so they could be reminded of the time--and expect them to come home on time.
"Out with my friends."

“Virtually Yours” Session 12 “Do It Again”

Virtually Yours “Do It Again” glosses over Christmas (due to Wi-Fi issues where Seth is at the time) and now he is also conflicted as he spent time talking with someone he met at the ski slopes. How will Elise take this news?
Releasing later this week.


“A Heart of Crystal” Chapter 1 “Don’t Try This at Home” (starter)


“Return to base.”
“Are we teleporting or transporter or something?”
“Oh, no, it’s a quick flight. Maybe ten minutes. Just sit back and relax.”
“Relax? I am going to explode.”
“Eventually, maybe. Then again, maybe not. Our specialists can work miracles.”
“Can they heal a broken heart?” I asked as the car levitated off the ground,
