I write down snatches of conversation I've overheard, stuff I've seen walking around, lists, thoughts on what I've been reading. For me, the trick is to just keep the words moving through. Then, when I need to focus on a project, I don't have to worry about priming the pump. I just let 'er rip.(less)

I only meant to write a short story, but Brian jumped in with a second -- then a third -- chapter and the whole thing snowballed from there.(less)

HWA Poetry Showcase

[image error]I’m excited to announce I’ve got a poem in the upcoming Poetry Showcase being put together by the Horror Writers Association.


My vampire poem “Transubstantiation” was written a very long time ago, when I was trying my hand at writing song lyrics. (It’s so much harder than it looks!) It was recorded by Trance and released on the album The Beaten Track in 1989. You can check that whole a

The perfect book to read in the middle of a pandemic. It moves quickly, the main character is snarky, and it's so short it doesn't overstay its welcome. I loved the first Murderbot book and missed the middle ones because my local bookstore didn't hav ...more

“Curiosity is the single most important attribute with which humans are born. More than a simple desire to discover or know things, curiosity is a powerful tool, like a scalpel or a searchlight. Curiosity changes us. It is also a way to effect change, perhaps even on a global level.”
Loren Rhoads, Morbid Curiosity Cures the Blues: True Stories of the Unsavory, Unwise, Unorthodox and Unusual from the magazine "Morbid Curiosity"

Topics Mentioning This Author

“For these beings, fall is ever the normal season, the only weather, there be no choice beyond. Where do they come from? The dust. Where do they go? The grave. Does blood stir their veins? No: the night wind. What ticks in their head? The worm. What speaks from their mouth? The toad. What sees from their eye? The snake. What hears with their ear? The abyss between the stars. They sift the human storm for souls, eat flesh of reason, fill tombs with sinners. They frenzy forth....Such are the autumn people.”
Ray Bradbury

“The wolf is carnivore incarnate and he's as cunning as he is ferocious; once he's had a taste of flesh then nothing else will do.”
Angela Carter

“Curiosity is the single most important attribute with which humans are born. More than a simple desire to discover or know things, curiosity is a powerful tool, like a scalpel or a searchlight. Curiosity changes us. It is also a way to effect change, perhaps even on a global level.”
Loren Rhoads, Morbid Curiosity Cures the Blues: True Stories of the Unsavory, Unwise, Unorthodox and Unusual from the magazine "Morbid Curiosity"

“Finally, from so little sleeping and so much reading, his brain dried up and he went completely out of his mind.”
Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Don Quixote

“What does it mean when nightmares dream of peace? When shadows wish for light?”
Melissa Marr, Ink Exchange
