Welcome!

Please be aware: I do not read or write horror or erotica. I do not read or write anything to do with vampires, ghosts, witches or anything else paranormal. And although my stories contain scumbags galore, you will never hear them cursing. Yes, I know scumbags curse in real life. In real life, they also pass gas.

 

Mystery and suspense...

are mainly what you'll find here, with a few rants, some angry mutterings, plus four chapters from The Man in the Darkness. If you like The Man in the Darkness, the link to purchase the book is at the end of each chapter.

I hope you find some stories you enjoy. If you like something, leave me a note. If you think something's awful, I'd like to hear about that too. Compliments are fun, but criticism helps me improve.

Here You'll Find Bones started as a generic whodunit, but it's turning into a Civil War epic, and one thing about an epic: you can't type a single word more than necessary. And so I've learned to cut all flab (from my writing, if not my person). I just turned this newfound ability onto The Diamond Earring, and gave it an overhaul. Enjoy.

 

 

"We are a species that needs and wants to understand who we are. Sheep lice do not seem to share this longing, which is one reason why they write so little." -Anne Lamott
