Saturday Scenes

I’m already sick of being cold *** Snow landed on her eyelashes and white hair. The ice crystals framed the world, beautiful and cold. She was warm, snug-a-bed, under her blanket of snow. Lethargy overcame her as early dusk faded into dark. It was time for sleep. “Haven’t you slept long enough?” The voice was […]

#saturdayscenes AND Publishing Day!

Yup! It’s a publishing day! So I have a scene from Wendigo for everybody! *** Dean pulled the Mustang into the post office parking lot. “That’s the phone.” Sam grunted and picked at his teeth with his nail. The silence stretched out, but Dean didn’t know how to break it. Sam stared out the window […]

This week I’m posting from my YA trilogy, Hedge Doctor. Jeff Hansen is a witch with the green touch, the ability to grow plants. His green touch is exceptionally strong though. He can not just grow plants, but enhance their medicinal and magical abilities. He practices his art on monster hunters, people who can’t get […]

This weeks scene is from my short story Wendigo: Sam stared at the matte black beauty in front of him. He ran a hand along the sleek lines as he spoke. “1965 Mustang. Automatic?” “Four speed.” Dean’s eyes grew warm as he walked around the car. “Bucket seats, dual exhaust, and all the original leather […]

This week’s scene is in honor of Supernatural’s 200th episode. It’s from my short Wendigo, an affectionate send up of the show. *** Sam settled down in Rick’s recliner, grateful for a little peace and quiet. No intense bass boomed from the speakers of Matty’s basement bedroom. The stairs were blissfully empty of Rick and […]

From my story, Talasam: Sam let go of Matty and sat back in his chair with eyes closed. “I don’t know exactly what happened to them after they escaped. They had a few run ins with the Tribes, but when Mina killed a civilian they had to separate. They knew there’d be no hiding from […]

It’s the beginning of Nanowrimo! I’m using mine to finish the final Mina and Matty series. I have the first story finished, so I figured I’d share the beginning of that. Warning: MASSIVE Monsters of Pittsburgh Spoilers to follow: His battered kidneys protested as Rick stretched. He’s been distracted knowing that Jen would be here […]

From my latest novella, Sheepsquatch: Rick watched Mina storm off. He wasn’t sure why she was upset, but she obviously was. He wondered if he’d done something else. You’ve done enough already. He tried to push away the guilt. He hadn’t done anything wrong. He’d only asked her out. She’d been clear that dating wasn’t […]

Today’s scene is from my latest novella, Sheepsquatch: Surprise stopped Mina when she stepped into the stockroom of Rita’s bar. It had been transformed into a makeshift clinic. Pallets of beer had been covered with thin, snowy-white blankets. A boy with shaggy, pale hair and a soccer uniform stood by one. The impromptu table held […]

A friend gave us a prompt, and this was my response: Missy Chambers kicked at the red and orange leaves as she waited for the bus back to her dorm. Soon enough they’d be raked and burned, but right now they smelled of autumn, and crunched under her sneakers. She loved Hyde Park in the […]
