The door wasn’t closed well so Istepped in and called out, “Myrna, are you here?  It’s Laura.  Can I come in?  I just wanted to check on you after we talked yesterday.”

There was still no answer.  She might have been napping but I wanted to be sure.  There was no one in her room, but I could hear chanting from the second bedroom.  Maybe she was meditating.  The door was slightly ajar and I could see her standing there in front of some sort of altar.  What surprised me was that Myrna was buck naked, holding a scepter over her head in her left hand, and…

doodle your stress volume 1 coverI write books. That’s more or less a given. However, not as well known fact, I also doodle. I’ve done this since I was a kid. Anytime I got bored, I doodled pictures on the sides of my note pages. They varied somewhat, but most of the time, they were rockets. I’ve often reflected on that, and came to the conclusion that this was because I wanted to escape the boredom of the class.

When I got to be in 6th or 7th grade, a friend of mine showed me something she had done – abstract doodles on tinfoil. That really sparked my imagination. Not only did I have cool shapes, I had the embossed feel and glitter of the foil. However, my mother didn’t much like me hogging all her foil, so I started doing it on paper. The margins of my note pages changed, getting much…

Standard

Love in the City

This story hasn’t got a proper title yet. Still kicking ideas around, so it’s just listed under the main character’s name.

Ryder Bradley is a DJ for weddings receptions, parties, the occasional Bat Mitzvah. Single and not loving it, he never uses his job to enhance his love life, until he meets Cerise Lafayette. She makes his head spin like a record. Unable to stop himself, he asks her out and is delighted when she says yes.

Lunch was fantastic. Not only was the food good, best damn fish and chips in town, but the company was amazing. Cerise was the best conversationalist I’ve ever met. She kept up with my, sometimes abrupt, subject changes, asked questions and answered mine with skill. Her wide range of interests meshed with mine as well. I could feel myself falling in total, fully immersed like with her. I can’t say love, I’ve known…
