Excerpt: Medusa, The Lost Daughter

Excerpt:

From “The Sinking Ship”

Only a fool tempts a fate he cannot

change or bargains with a sealed deal, when the

only choice left is to comply. Man

drowns as the ship sinks, if he only thinks

of the ship and not of saving himself.

Excerpt from “The Gorgon Awaits Her Fate”

“For sixteen years, the blood sun neither set

nor rose upon the basalt shores of

Welcome to 2020!

Welcome to 2020!
I am back from a break and ready to post in the new year. I have a lot of projects planned–writing-wise–in 2020 that I am thrilled to share with you! One project, of which, is the fiction version of Medusa, The Lost Daughter! Yes, the poetry version will be expanded into a full-blown fiction version. It is in the works, so I will be posting some snippets from the poetic version for you to get you ready for it!
Also, there may be some local workshops that I may be leading coming your way if you living in the MD/VA/DC area. Stay tuned.
There may be a free writing camp available online soon. Hmmm…a very big possibility!
I just finished my first fiction work, The Fleeting Lights. It has passed the first draft mark. I am so excited!
Also, the new year is not without celebrating. Keep your eyes open for some giveaways. Could be Medusa or anything else. Stay tuned.
Happy 2020!
