The Dry Grass of August by Anna Jean Mayhew

It’s sometime between afternoon and evening when I arrive at Cup A Joe in Hillsborough to meet with A.J. Mayhew, author of the award-winning The Dry Grass of August. The trees lining picturesque West King Street are in blossom; it’s Mayberry with art galleries and decent restaurants.

A.J. appears beside me in the quaint coffee shop as if by teleportation, wearing owlish spectacles that make her... Read more of this blog post »

“Some of the apparitions that emerged from the shadows of doorways and alleys were incomplete, manifesting in full only as they reached the light of the kiosk. An empty dress floated through the night air as if it had become detached from a clothesline by some persistent breeze. As it drifted slowly toward the subway, translucent hands and ankles became visible. A bicycle rolled across the courtyard, chain squeaking softly, a pair of black slacks taking form as it entered the glow of the kiosk lamps.”
C.D. Sweitzer, The Grimoire, Volume III

“Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.”
Benjamin Franklin

“Don’t try to make life a mathematics problem with yourself in the center and everything coming out equal. When you’re good, bad things can still happen. And if you’re bad, you can still be lucky.”
Barbara Kingsolver, The Poisonwood Bible

“You see things; you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say 'Why not?”
George Bernard Shaw, Back to Methuselah
