The Slick Furies, Pulp-Horror

I had no plans to ever write about vampires. I was writing a western, in which these creatures were swooping from the sky, attacking, and, as it so happened, they turned out to be vampires with pale lavender skin, and jaundiced, yellow, eyes. As the story began to unfold, there was also a shape-shifter, or... Continue Reading →

So, I am a poetess And I knowitess. April is National Poetry Month. Here is a link to poets.org, if you are interested, you can check that out. Rarely have I discussed my favorite poets. Some of that is because it has been very personal to me, and some of it is because if you... Continue Reading →

Why I Write Fiction

Sometime last winter, I posted on a temporary page that I had going on that I was going to write this particular thing, and then I was going to write that thing, and then I was going to write this other thing. Then I looked at it and I thought, but, I don't do that,... Continue Reading →

The Life I Know

Some have a minimalist sense of decor. Some have a simple mode of dress, or a sparse writingย  style. Others become minimalist in a different way,ย  in the shedding of layers, of cluttered personalities, of borrowed things, day after day, as I now see so clearly, and so far, all the things that nearly all...

An Unraveled Hem, Joan Didion

I've kept some kind of a notebook, or journal, since junior high. Thankfully, the majority of them have gone the way of the wind. I suppose that's a nice way of saying that I destroyed them at one time or another. I recall erasing every word one January, in some other life a million years... Continue Reading →

Journey With My Heart

Do you know what we have? Something that time will never touch, distance is no match for it, we are lucky to have it as such. Something simple, yet misunderstood, in all of its honesty, around my life I wear the pearls, of wisdom, learned from its rarity. Diamonds look dull lain beside it, for... Continue Reading →

Pull Together America

So, it has only been a week since I posted anything, it's felt like longer. Today President Trump signed an executive order the gist of which is that the Dakota Access Pipeline is going through. My opinion, I continue to think that it would be smarter to re-route the pipeline. However, here is where it's... Continue Reading →

2016 In Books

These are the books that I read this year, though I am still reading from the Carson McCullers and the Delia Sherman book at random, I'm just about finished with them both. I'd previously read "Mornings in Mexico" and finished "Etruscan Places" over the summer. "Cheyenne Madonna" was what I was reading back in January,... Continue Reading →

Unfettered

These petals turn in falling soft against the snow, We throw away some words to draw each other in, If these are not the ones to stir your soul, Tell me, Love, and Iโ€™ll begin again. To feel the heat of your gaze upon my ivory skin, to bathe in moonlight through the curtains drawn,... Continue Reading →
