About Patreon

Next week my Patreon goes live and there’s still people who don’t know about Patreon, or mistake it for something else. Patreon is generally lumped in with “crowdfunding” in popular media which kind of makes me cringe because the difference between what the Patreon platform enables creators to do and other crowdfunding sites is like […]

Halloween Goodies

Ghost stories and eerie music, they really go together, don’t they? I have both! All this month I’m posting my ghost stories on Wattpad and if you want a bit of ambient music to go with it, check out my Halloween Soundscape album on iTunes, Amazon, or other digital music stores. This music is good for setting […]

New Short Stories and Why Wattpad

Her Voice, Everywhere

It’s been a while since I dropped a little story here. Here’s something for Valentine’s Day. It was inspired by an article I read a few years ago, about the widow of the actor who gave the “Mind the Gap” announcement on the London Tube stations, or used to. It’s a sweet story with a […]

Rock and Rolling Thunder

A little bit of flash fiction on a rainy day. This goes nicely with my (free!) Rainmaker project on my Gymshoes Music site. I recently added a new track, “Summer Thunder”. 😀 She awoke before dawn to thunder and the restless movement of dogs on the bed. Light strobed against the curtains turning the sedate […]

The Shepherd Of The Uncanny Valley

I was awakened at 5 am by one of the dogs urping. (She’s okay now.) As I was trying to get back to sleep, in that hypnogogic state, I saw a sheep with a hole in its head. The whole story unspooled itself in my mind word by word until I was fully awake and […]

In the meantime…Favorite Fiction Podcasts

I’m busy working on the next book, which has turned into quite a project. I’m enjoying myself enormously, but realize that my friends, fans, readers, etc. need a steady dose of fiction — and I’ve still got a lot of writing to do! So, in the meantime, you can enjoy my favorite fiction podcasts. 🙂 […]
