“Constanzo not only sacrificed human beings, but he also ate parts of them.  Let me explain.  If lets say he felt his penis was too small, he would kidnap and murder a male with a larger penis for the sole purpose of lobbing it off with his trusty machete and then cooking and eating it.  By eating the other man’s penis, Constanzo believed his would grow in size.  After he [...]

A Path to this Moment

I wake to storm like weather, the sky was dark, still groggy, every muscle in my body aches. I ease up. I am starving; reaching into my bag I pull out the trail mix, and eat some. “This is not going to cut it” I say as I hold some out to Walker. I slowly make my way up to stand, heading to the river. I lay over some rocks [...]

Boot & Milk Balls (01)

 THIS IS THE JOURNAL ENTRY FROM MY CHARACTER DEBNEY An eighteen year old living through the death of her dysfunctional family, bullies at school, and an unexpected pregnancy I tend to wonder if the person I once thought I was, became that  girl because of her surroundings. I now know DNA had nothing to do with my dark hair or olive skin - at least not the DNA  I was born into. Does DNA determine character?  Does it make you honest, a thief, a crybaby, or a survivor?  EXCERPT From the Novel D.N.A.-Nothing Would Ever be the Same   Nothing was as it had been. From the [...]

Does D.N.A. Determine Character?

Another entry from Debney's journal. I like this girl. She's obedient (usually), well liked(mostly) and secretly in love with her childhood friend, Giante'. She just has a mind of her own. This is one of my favorite excerpts from D.N.A.. Clad in her bathing suit she had been sitting on the steps of the pool with her feet dangling in the water nonchalantly listening to her iPod and reading from one of the pile of books on pregnancy and home child birth stacked at her side when she received the shock of his presence. She hadn't noticed him coming from the [...]

I Love You Inspite of You: Excerpt from D.N.A.

Poor Debney. She is going through major traumas in her life. This view into her journal shares a visit with her Uncle Ben- a family friend. It's always comforting when Uncle Ben comes around. It gives me feel as if I am not alone. Like when he came over not too many days after the death of my family. Excerpt: The continued ringing of the doorbell and the knowledge she would have to perform some semblance of entertainment wrecked what little energy she had left. She'd finally made up her mind to drag herself into her own bedroom and ignore the shrill, persistent [...]

In Times of Need

Harrie frowned and pulled her agent’s key from her briefcase. Carefully, she inserted it into the lockbox, snapping it open. Retrieving the front-door key from the box, she shoved it into the lock and gave it a turn. There was an immediate and reassuring click. She turned the great, brass knob and the door swung slowly open. “Anybody here?” she called. “Abigail?” She stepped into the house and let the door swing shut behind her. It closed with a massive ‘bang’ that made Harrie jump. She shook her head. Stupid! “Abigail?” she called again. Obviously, she was the first to arrive. “Oh, well,” she said to [...]

Real Estates

Thunder tore through the cabin as the walls trembled against the quaking foundation. Damon grabbed a vampyre by the neck and tossed him through the drywall. His deadly sword quickly followed, piercing directly into the heart of the monster. The blood sucker cried out in pain as it clawed desperately at his attacker. The blade exited. Before the vampyre’s feet could hit the floor, edged steel smoothly creased against his throat, flawlessly severing head from body. Damon moved quickly through the horde, his weapon swift and true, eliminating numbers of the enemy’s army. One after another, they poured from all crevices [...]

Blood and Kindred - Book 2 of Bloodlines Series

The evening sky pulsed, hues of deep purples and blacks engraving blurry lines above the earth. The night echoed its cries, carried by angry breezes through the hills of the land. The cemetery, cascaded in carved tombstones that sprouted from the ground, laid empty and dormant, except for the busy, yet silent whispers of the dead. The ground, wet and damp, gave way beneath Cara’s bare feet as she trudged through the mud pushing between her toes. Her eyes traveled towards the ground to study her soiled feet, finding her body was draped in a simple, yet elegant white dress which [...]

The Cause: Love & War - Emilie

  Chapter 6 Current Affairs Have Consequences   Throughout 2013 and early 2014 politicians behaving badly have dominated the political scene and the media’s attention.  Furthermore, there has been a seemingly endless parade of governmental over reach scandals that directly affect us all.  Hopefully this would sear an unforgettable impression upon the American conscience as the November midterm elections approach.  Numerous pundits and social critics have reflected over the span of our nation’s history and concluded that the American memory is short and replete with a forgiving if not altogether forgetful attitude towards the shameful character flaws of our elected officials.  While this indulgent [...]
