Excerpt: Medusa, The Lost Daughter

Excerpt from “The Oracle of Cisthene”

Oracle tells no lies to the men who

come to it want to hear. He who believes

he is without worry worries the most

for what lies beyond his control.

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!
