Thank you for being here. 😊

Finally, an update: I just finished a life aligning two-month marathon of writing, crisis and survival. “To sum it up, I tried to step back for a minute and fell off a cliff. At the bottom of the ravine I found what I was looking for. I’m back to work with a mission.”

I’ll be posting trip details+ on my socials and catch up when I can.

The latest! I was on NBC Radio’s House of Mystery Radio talking about the yuta experience (Okinawan medium), Tortured Willows, on being part Shimanchu and my encounter with a Nukekubi (headless ghost/vampire you don’t want to meet).

It was also a pleasure to be on the Michigan Avenue Media Podcast talking about the Anne Rice Tribute Anthology along with Rebecca Rowland, Elaine Pascale and Trish Wilson. ALL moneys raised goes to Animal Rescue New Orleans (ARNO) 💖🐶🐼🐱💝

And the third podcast I guested on recently… and time to take a break! Check out the very first episode of the new Verses from the Void podcast where I “read poems from the Stoker-winning Tortured Willows and discusses some fascinating history, shamanism, and shares a real life ghost story!”

Listen now: https://tinyurl.com/3sewtt39

It happened! Tortured Willows won the 2021 Bram Stoker Awards® for Superior Achievement in a Poetry Collection and “Horror Writers: Architects of Hope” won for Superior Achievement in Short Non-Fiction! TWO Bram Stoker Awards!

Thank you everyone for the support!

Note: the BUILDING BOOKS class is being redeveloped due to a Papyrus Author update! When it’s ready I’ll release it as one video instead of weekly classes.

There’s a rumor going around that I tried to write Romance?!?

It’s true. Available now, a new episode of SOFT DEADLINES, my serialized paranormal romance novel on Kindle Vella. This is not a joke, I did write a paranormal romance for NANOWRIMO 2020 as a challenge.

About the story: Naomi is a woman waking up to realize life is passing her by. Duncan is a six foot tall blue incubus trying to get some rest. He finds it with Naomi, and possibly something more. If only they can get his ex to leave them alone. It’s hard to hide from a jealous succubus. Find it on Kindle Vella here.

LOOKING FOR SHISA? I don’t sell shisa keychains, just give them away. It’s my way to try and offset some of the negativity out there. If you’d like a shisa keychain, I’ll be happy to send one anywhere for postage. I just made a page for that here. I’d love to see what you do with your shisa. Share them with me on Facebook here.
