Sometimes music, long walks, showers, or long drives will get my mind turning over new ideas. Also, sometimes reading or watching something new will kick start my creative juices.(less)

Behold!  A forthcoming anthology that I am part of!  

SONGS OF THE DEEP

Once long ago, women were believed to be bad luck if on ships. A belief that led to their demise at the hands of men.

Once thrown over, they drowned or, in some cases, saved by the God of the Sea. Granted a new life under the waves, these women could seek revenge and second chances. As times changed, any who found death unde

“What you humans need to do is find beauty in the fact that something is naturally the way it is. Perhaps then you wouldn't be so destructive." [Meems says to Ellani]”
A.L. Davroe, Nexis

“In a flurry of sharp brocade coattails and gossamer gowns cut in the Neo-Baroque fashion, the crowd turns back to their conversations, the perfect epitome of what all Aristocrats are like—bored and quickly dissatisfied with the latest trends.”
A.L. Davroe, Nexis

“His fingers tighten, drawing my leg open so that ours knees touch and he leans closer to me. “Not at all,” he whispers in a spine-tingling purr, eyes alight with secret sparkle. “It should scare you. It should scare you and enliven you. It should make you want to start a fire. Because you can.”
A.L. Davroe, Nexis

“I've been making a list of the things they don't teach you at school. They don't teach you how to love somebody. They don't teach you how to be famous. They don't teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don't teach you how to walk away from someone you don't love any longer. They don't teach you how to know what's going on in someone else's mind. They don't teach you what to say to someone who's dying. They don't teach you anything worth knowing.”
Neil Gaiman, The Kindly Ones

“We are all born mad. Some remain so.”
Samuel Beckett

“She would defend herself, saying that love, no matter what else it might be, was a natural talent. She would say: You are either born knowing how, or you never know.”
Gabriel García Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera
