Since the relaunch I have had a few inquiries as to whether readers may have missed any stories written while the blog was down. Also Mark and Melanie D asked if I have written anywhere but this blog. The answer is that while most things I have ever written are available here, some shorts and […]


Some of you have asked after my wife since I told you she was working on a project of her own. It has even been suggested that I have grounded her and that is why she has disappeared. Although sometimes I am sorely tempted, this is not the case this time. The last time I […]

Part 1 can be found here. Megan was in freefall. There had to be a way out, but just then she didn’t see it. Maybe the king was just trying to scare her and she could cut a deal. Maybe if she agreed not to write an exposé or perhaps she could get word to […]


Part 1 can be found here. Megan felt groggy to the point of nausea, but she couldn’t work the spit up to swallow, let alone vomit away the dry bitter taste in her mouth. Even her eyes failed her as it was too bright to open them and the darkness only offered a spinning increase […]
