What I Write

Writing Sample

I call this the book of keeping me alive. It doesn’t matter if any of it is true. It’s what I know.

These days, reality is a cold, hollowed bone and waking into it on the daily sucks a big one. So I tell myself stories to make these moments livable. Because without words, I would be well and  truly dead. And in my absence from this world would come a haunting. The moment I leave, a darkness will death rattle its way in, and no one will even know to stop it. So, I’m not writing these words for me. I’m writing them for you.


What I Write

Surreal, weird, horrific. Young adult and old adult.


“If You Can’t Take the Heat, Don’t Hire a Yeti,” Menacing Hedge
