“Remembering Warriors” Rabbit Bundle


My book, Soldier, Storyteller will be released in the Remembering Warriors on January 1. One hundred years ago, in 1918, the Great War ended after four terrible years. Never had the world seen such a conflict. All touched by its scythe hoped we would never be thusly reaped again. Their hopes were but desperate dreams. …

Writing in Public, Story 6, Scene 23


23 Charles almost refused to come over to Randy’s house, especially after learning “one of those Chandlers” was there. Randy, frustrated by the stupidity of the feud, blurted, “So you’d the whole town go to hell than deal with a Chandler?” That had gotten him a stony silence for so long he wondered if his …

Sorry for the delay on this.  I’ve been taking the Novel Structure workshop.  It’s a lot more work than the other workshops I’ve taken, and it’s a huge learning curve for me.  Might have another lesson with a lot of work this week, and then the next two weeks, I’ll have two workshops at the …

18 Randy took off at a run, headed back to the Chandler house. Fear pounded in his throat and face and chest. It pushed at him from behind and came at him from all around. The day had grown distressingly dark.  He could still see the sun through the trees, but it seemed dimmer. He …

17 It was like time had gone into slow motion.  Brian reached across the front seat.  His fingers fumbled at the lock. He might have said something. Shimmering light drew Nikki’s gaze.  Like a rainbow that had been scrunched. Light shot from her house, and the other six houses, seven beams that intersected in the …

Halloween Adventures


I’ve been working on a short story for an anthology call that’s closing tomorrow, but I had time for a quick walk around the neighborhood to have a look at the Halloween decorations.  These are some of the pretty cool ones.  Enjoy!

15 (continued) Nikki opened her mouth to retort. Stopped as the air chilled. The day darkened as if a shadow passed in front of the sun. Brian got out of the truck, pulling off his sun glasses.  People were coming out of their houses to see what was happening. Pressure tightened its grip around Nikki. …
