Two boys decide to explore the abandoned mission situated in a remote area of their town, and become trapped in a nightmare of hellish proportions!
The story is fast paced and kept me on the edge of my seat, barely breathing, heart pounding and imagination running wild... because I read it while I was ALONE AT NIGHT (which wasn't my intention...) and I'm a scaredy cat when it comes to horror! *shudders*
The author's close attention to tiny details ramps up the tension and sucks you in, deeper and deeper, every step of the way!
A great story for Hallowe'en month!
A Jumble of 500+ Writing Prompts
on Oct. 18, 2015
This is the perfect book for somebody who enjoys writing from prompts.
I've already used some of these prompts during the creation of my A to Z Challenge flash fiction pieces, as well as my haiku writing.
Prompts never fail to get my creative juices flowing so I know that I'll make continued use of this nifty resource.
However, ALL writers will benefit from this handy resource.
Biggun: A Short Story (Zombie Horror)
on Oct. 20, 2015
Non-stop action in this one!
I can't shake the gruesome image of a zombie invasion... a horde of hungry zombies advancing in a relentless fashion... pressing on... and on... and on... aaaaargh!
Wonderful writing. Sharp. Vivid. Descriptive.
An unexpected twist at the end.

Are you a horror fan who loves to feast on dark humor?
Then this gourmet piece is just for you.
I'm not sure if I was more horrified or amused by this 'exotic snack'.
The author has an amazing sense of humor!
Give this story a try!

Preparing to Write Settings That Feel Like Characters
on March 04, 2016
It takes great writing skill to make a setting/place feel real and dynamic, so that it "comes alive" for the reader.
This book provides tons of information on how to incorporate the setting into the story, so that it becomes an integral part of the characters' experience.
This is a reference guide that any writer can turn to again and again, for various writing projects, and as the need arises.
A handy resource!
