Happy May 14th!
May 14th is Mother's Day this year, in the US. While I could (and have already) wax poetic, vulgar and profane about how much I despise this holiday, how I hate that it idolizes women who have produced offspring, whether we can raise them, or even wanted th...

Short Story: Borrowed Body Highs
I wrote this the other day, after dreaming it. As often is the case with me and my fiction, I dream all or part of the "story", and then write it down, expanding it, editing it for clarity, or continuing the story that was interrupted by my waking up. The i...

Mourning and Loss
This year, so far, has been a difficult one for many of us. Politics and our activism aside (or as far aside as we can place something so close to our hearts, so innate to who we are), it's not quite the end of the first quarter, and already there have been...

Personal Evolution
If you know me, you know my motto/personal life-sentence: Evolve, change, learn! If you stop evolving, changing, learning, you stagnate. If you stagnate, you die. I've been thinking about this motto for a long time, as I've refined, it and truly realised th...

Retelling of the story of Tam Lin-Samhain/Hallowe'en 2016
I know I promised a ghost story; I haven't been able to finish the two I've started. My characters just went on strike and started laughing at me, as they are wont to do :) I think this happens because I have such a huge universe of people in my own imagina...

Tell me about the Boogie Man...
What does the Boogie Man look like? When I was a kid, I always imagined him as an overly tall
man with a top hat, long, lanky body and in an old suit, almost like your
generic mortician from the old western movies. I can’t tell you why I thought
of him that...

Fragility
I'm working on a ghost story to share in the next week, but as I'm letting the story tell itself to me, I keep rounding back on one word, over and over, "Fragile." What, exactly is fragile? It means something delicate, something that will break if we aren't...

More Ghost Stories!- Haunted Cat Shelter
It was a dark and stormy night... Once upon a time... Back in the day... Do you remember when... These are fairly cliched ways to start a story. We've used them so much, that some have become memes, and the people sharing them don't even know where they sta...
