I Miss the Girl You Were

I Miss the Girl You Were

I first encountered this prompt on Tumblr. The full prompt is: “I miss the girl you were.” “Many will. She was easier to kill.” The moment I read it, I thought of Cazella and this is the result. . . . He recognized her the moment his eyes fell on her; the woman with the …

Top Six Prompts from the First Year

Top Six Prompts from the First Year

On the thirty-first of July, 2015, I posted my first ever writing prompt. It kicked off a weekly tradition of taking time to write for myself, for fun, for practice and for personal development. Today I wrote prompt number ninety – hard to believe I’ve done that many! I’ve had a lot of fun responding …

The Blue Rose

The Blue Rose

This is an old piece that I found while digging around on my hard drive (so it may be a bit rougher than usual). Several years ago (probably close to a decade now), my husband and I were coming home from dinner out on Valentine’s Day and we encountered a flower seller in the subway …

The Sweetness of Eden; A Tale of Lust

The Sweetness of Eden; A Tale of Lust

I Will Lie to You

I Will Lie to You

As the dim light of the station’s simulated dawn struck her eyes, Cazella remembered only her terror when she approached the security manager’s door. Such fear was born neither of knowing that she was surrounded by the mob, nor the fact that she was likely to become their target within the hour; both were positions …

A Modern Fantasy Setting

A Modern Fantasy Setting

I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of a fantasy world that made it to modern times. Not quite the same as urban fantasy, which tends to be our world with magical elements tossed in. More like a high fantasy world whose ancient empires never fell. A world where it makes sense for a warrior …

Short and Sweet

Short and Sweet

The day this goes live, my little brother will have just finished saying his vows. I will be fresh back from a whirlwind trip to the states (probably and hopefully deeply asleep). I’m sure it was a lovely wedding (though I’m writing in this in the past, so I don’t yet have details). In any …
