When They Come

Leave a commentFiction

When they found him, he was incoherent. “They come in the night,” he said. Evelyn knelt beside him. She scanned his face, coming to rest on his eyes. The two were joined for a moment, gaze-locked. Then he broke the silence, his eyes wandering to the floor as he muttered, “That’s when they come.” Evelyn […]

Raven’s Wings

Leave a commentFiction

I’m not sure where this is going just yet. Maybe nowhere. Or maybe this is a new series. Or a new book. This is a continuation of “Raven’s Wrath” which I published a couple of weeks back. I liked the idea of there being more to it, so here it goes. You couldn’t know this, […]

Raven’s Wrath

I make promises. I break ’em. But I swear, I do intend to be more consistent in writing fiction. It’s good for me, and it’s fun. To prove my intent, here’s a quick little something to … brighten up? … your Friday. Once more, a prompt from The Prediction: 100 words maximum, excluding the title, […]

Too Much

“It’s all too much.” That’s what I told her. She gave me that look. You know the one. I know you know the one. I sighed because that’s what I do when she gives me that look. “It’s not complicated,” she said. I cocked my head to the side. Had I been a cat, I […]

The Crate

It’s been a while. Too long. I know. Things I’ve said before. But I mean it. I used to publish here every week, and life kind of forced a pause on that. A lot has changed, but I miss the writing. I intend to start it up again, slowly, like easing into freezing waters. How […]

The Dentist

It’s been far too long since I posted any fiction. Time to change that, though I’m easing back in with something super-short. Just 98 words. The prompt comes from The Prediction: 100 words maximum, excluding the title, of flash fiction or poetry using all of the three words above (‘floss’, ‘history’ and ‘sketch’) in the […]

Tender Embrace

This week, another redo. I promise to bring you something fresh next week. But first, I’d like to revisit one of my favorite short stories. It’s simple and quick, with a nice little reveal at the end. I like the punchiness of it. I made only minor edits to the original. Enjoy. tender embrace “You’re […]

Leaving the Fold

I’m sorry for the fiction hiatus. It’s been a long month, full of ups and downs. Most weeks I’ve just been too drained. I’ve started a few stories, but finished none. And this week, I’m cheating. Sort of. I’m dusting off an old story originally published on my site all the way back in 2012. […]

Fuck Mary Kill

Leave a commentFiction

I heard someone reference the game “Fuck, Marry, Kill” this past week, and it immediately struck me as the basis of a story. After all, there’s a name in there. If you tease it out. When I started this, that’s all I had. A name. But it flowed right into The Assassin Diaries beautifully, even though […]
