Possibly psychotic, unapologetically sarcastic and almost completely detached from reality - I try to present the seemingly random thoughts drifting around my head in a paper using an organized system of linguistics.

Occasionally I succeed.

I have a short poetry collection Burning Muse published and am currently working on finishing a novel. Or three. It could either be a contemporary YA thriller, a paranormal romance or a sci-fi NA book. Whichever unravels itself first.

More random ramblings can be found at my blog:

About friend requests, I love interacting with people on GoodReads and am very active here. But I only add people whom I have a lot of books in common with and am sure to interact with than be

There’s silence in the screams

If you can ignore it

Move past people’s woes

Not hearing it

Not acknowledging it

Not wanting to listen.


There is silence in the screams

If you want it

If you need it

If you close yourself off to the world

And close yourself in within your thoughts.


There is silence in the screams

If you yourself are screaming the loudest

And you don’t care

Not anymore

And you don’t listen

Description: Imagine me, sitting in a class, listening to an oh-so-boring lecture by a random wise guy lecturer, bored out of my mind. What mostly gets down on my notebooks are not necessarily related to that. These are my classroom scribblings from okay to god-awful. Those who have been bored out of their minds too would understand.

The Black Eyed Devil (Poetry)
5 chapters   —   updated Sep 21, 2012 06:13PM

Dan Brown
“History is always written by the winners. When two cultures clash, the loser is obliterated, and the winner writes the history books-books which glorify their own cause and disparage the conquered foe. As Napoleon once said, 'What is history, but a fable agreed upon?”
Dan Brown, The Da Vinci Code

Dan Brown
“The Bible did not arrive by fax from heaven. The Bible is the product of man, my dear. Not of God. The Bible did not fall magically from the clouds. Man created it as a historical record of tumultuous times, and it has evolved through countless translations, additions, and revisions. History has never had a definitive version of the book.”
Dan Brown, The Da Vinci Code

Dan Brown
“Learning the truth has become my life's love.”
Dan Brown, The Da Vinci Code

Dan Brown
“Why do you think the Bible has survived thousands of years of tumultuous history Why is it still here Is it because its stories are such compelling reading Of course not...but there is a reason. There is a reason Christian monks spend lifetimes attempting to decipher the Bible. There is a reason that Jewish mystics and Kabbalists pore over the Old Testament. And that reason Robert is that there exist powerful secrets hidden in the pages of this ancient book...a vast collection of untapped wisdom waiting to be unveiled.”
Dan Brown, The Lost Symbol

“Power brings a man many luxuries, but a clean pair of hands is seldom among them.”
Robert Harris, Imperium: A Novel of Ancient Rome

Brigid Thanks for the friend add! :-) And thanks for your message. It was a tough decision about Kate in Spirit FOR SURE. But the book wasn't really about Hunter finding romance. It was about Hunter finding himself. I hope you like Secret when it comes out next January! You'll have to let me know what you think. :-)

message 18: by L'Poni (last edited Apr 13, 2013 01:24PM)

L'Poni (Just throwing this here so you can get a notification for it. I've no idea how these inter-profile notifications work).

I see you are familiar with Clusterfudge XD. It is a fantastical word, isn't it? A reply has been sent through the electronic messaging system. I highly suggest a sacred off-limits email for business and/or matters such as this one, but do not create too many electronic handles or thee will loose track of them.

PS: I has v1sited FB to add ur page 2 my page's faves.
(I visited Facebook to add your book's page to my book's list of favorite pages).

message 17: by L'Poni

L'Poni I hath sent thee an email that contains sensitive informations pertaining to the awareness of space-dwelling alien dragons/lizards with wings.
