I started writing Bad Pennies in the summer of 2016. Well, that’s not strictly true. I began writing a story very loosely based on my childhood. It wasn’t Bad Pennies, but it was where Bad pennies started. Your life need not be governed by your childhood, but it never leaves you.
Over the coming months that story led to a tale that took place many years later. It was linked to Bad Pennies and, i... Read more of this blog post »

She would try to convince them, just the same. A person did what a person could, whether it was setting up gravestones or trying to convince twenty-first-century men and women that there were monsters in the world, and their greatest advantage was the unwillingness of rational people to believe.
Nightmares can't hurt you. Monsters aren't real. Right? RIGHT?

Initially erred towards a 4 star because it's

Both of those are my humble opinion.
Arrived at 5 stars because it delivers.
