Joseph Kony is the leader of the LRA in Africa.  He abducts children and forces the boys to become soldiers in his army and uses the girls as sex slaves.  This man has committed horrible atrocities for no other reason than to secure his own power base.  He is Number one on the list of the worst men in the world and he must be stopped!  The following video (linked here and I will make it available in my video section) tells about a group determined to make this man famous, ...

Old Gnarleytoes

I seem to be on a roll here.  This next one is a cute little story in verse I call "Old Gnarlytoes".  It begs the question, "if something seems horrible, is it truly?"  I hope you all have been enjoying my posts lately and I hope you enjoy this one as it is one of my favorites so far.


Thanks!  :)

Having had so much fun with the last story I wrote, I have decided to do a few more short tales in verse.  Below is a cautionary tale reminiscent of the old folk tales  about faeries who spirit people away.  I hope you find it enjoyable (and informative!).


Please feel free to let me know what you thought of it.  Thank ...

The Proud Little Book

For my readers,

This is a story that I had written many years ago, but had actually lost over time.  It isn't written quite the same as it was, but the story hasn't changed for the wording I assure you.  I hope you enjoy it, and thanks for viewing.

Today, February 1st, marks the beginning of "A Month of Letters."  I have a growing address list with twelve people on it so far ranging from several states in the United States to places such as Canada, Australia, Korea and Qatar.  I'm looking on this challenge a definite way to broaden my horizons via the written word, as well as make new friends from places that I may never see, so that I may live vicariously through their experiences.  It promises to be very enlightening an...

Mary Robinette Kowal, my friend and aquaintance on Google + (and author in her own right), has offered a challenge for the month of February called A Month of Letters. The challenge is simple, write one letter a day for the month of February. I think I'll let Mary make the case here for me:
