From “The Gray Ones”

He who tries to circumvent his sentence

will still be guilty for the crimes committed

no matter his attempts to forget them.

Excerpt:

From “Athena’s Vengeance”

The best punishment is often the one that

allows the thief to steal the forbidden

and to think he is wise for it until he

is caught and the punishment is a surprise.

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.

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!
