Emily C. A. Snyder has been inventing stories since she was old enough to babble, and writing them down since she was old enough to dictate. A prolific writer, Snyder is the author of The Twelve Kingdoms series from Arx Publishing, LLC, as well as several Austenesque novels, including Nachtsturm Castle: A Gothic Austen Satire.

The premiere international scholar on writing new verse drama, she is the author of "Cupid and Psyche ~ A New Play in Blank Verse" which played to sold-out houses during its initial New York City run for Valentine's 2014. An internationally produced and published playwright, her work has been performed from Christchurch, New Zealand to Dublin, Ireland, touring several times throughout the continental United States.

Pocket Full of Drabbles (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Sep 29, 2009 01:26PM
Description: A "drabble" is a story (or at least a "completed" collection) of 100 words long. In attempting to stab my brain to life in the midst of work and working with post-nasal dribbles, I decided to write <i>one</i> drabble (b/c it is short, pithy, and means one feels as though one completed something with very little effort). This invariably led to a second drabble, which was connected to the first. Which is leading to a third...and so on. Because it never dribbles but it drabbles. (Oh, I'm full of 'em. Try the veal.) I'll upload them as I have them. <i> (And yes, turns out the above is also...a drabble. Oy.)</i>

“What could she have done? She was a heroine, and with that came certain obligations.”
Emily C.A. Snyder, Nachtstürm Castle: A Gothic Austen Novel

“Such a narrative as this demands some sort of physical consolation for its spiritual tribulation. Our heroine received it in one last cup of tea. The reader may be advised to do so likewise.”
Emily C.A. Snyder, Nachtstürm Castle: A Gothic Austen Novel

“Another strike of lightening – now accompanied by the deep-bellied rumble, and the horse reared, incidentally setting Henry very picturesquely against the inconstant moon. Alas, Catherine was deeply engaged in her argument with Old Edric and this missed entirely the melodramatic display. But we may assume that, possessing so strong an imagination, Catherine had often pictured Henry thus...”

“Our colleges ought to have lit up in us a lasting relish for a better kind of man, a loss of appetite for mediocrities.”

“Finally brothers and sisters; whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
