A few random things about me...

No one wanted a "Dollar Saver" with turkey poop splattered across the front page. Apparently that's where the best coupons are.

Get your work out there for the world to see!(less)

Even if a day or two... or three turn out to be positively atrocious. It keeps me in writing mode so when I do push through it and my muse returns I'm ready!(less)

“What a year it has been.” Twelve year old John William thought to himself. He sat in his uncle’s cozy living room with a dusty old book on his lap and his favorite fluffy dog, Sam sleeping at his feet. It was an eventful year; he discovered Azra’s Pith, the most wonderful place imaginable. He was captured by pirates, resulting in a battle John William could never have conjured in his wildest...
