Front & Center

Dear Jules, I’m still alive. But the war isn’t over, in spite of the epidemic that’s decimating the troops. They’re calling it The Weinstein Plague.

No bottom … Continue reading

The sound of a pin dropped vacuous threat of calm before the storm up until now. The many-faced the nameless strangled in the yarn. Confess. Confess. Arguments! Be damned. Dance for madam like an ape Tarzan hate Jane? The rampage rolls on. Rumplestiltkin! What have you done? The princess has escaped.

Just Shy Of Sunrise

I don’t remember my last cigarette, but I can still taste the first one: dried banana leaves (shag) clumsily rolled into a cigar, smoked hidden in the grass behind a ‘liberal’ neighbour’s yard, a rebel who’d never reveal the passage rites of new teens testing the boundaries. I wasn’t alone; my cousin of the same … Continue reading

Codename: Salvation

WARNING: SALTY LANGUAGE On the evening Brexit trumped on reason a devout man pleaded with me on a corner in Berlin a bold mission to extract my immortal soul from an imminent peril of which I was unaware. He told me I was born a sinner because a slutty woman put the wrong thing in … Continue reading

Odyssey of a Novice Writer

Aspiring novelist. Avid reader of fiction. Reviewer of books. By day, my undercover identity is that of meek, mild-mannered legal assistant, Kate Loveton, working in the confines of a stuffy corporate law office; by night, however, I'm a super hero: Kate Loveton, Aspiring Novelist and Spinner of Tales. My favorite words are 'Once upon a time... ' Won't you join me on my journey as I attempt to turn a hobby into something more?
