Random Acts of Poetry: Dark Greens

Occasionally, I write poetry. It’s mostly just exercise for my brain, but why not share it. Enjoy! Dark greens make clean lines around the bend In my vision. Shade-addled blurs of browns, A little fuzzy around the edges. If I reach far enough The ground speaks, A rumbling teacher who seats me Front And Center.Continue reading “Random Acts of Poetry: Dark Greens”

The Fox, an excerpt

It has been a while since I shared anything in blog form. I’m not much for journaling and I don’t have any exciting news (yet). So I’ve decided to share an excerpt from a WIP that I don’t actually work on much. It’s a piece I wander back to every once in a while, writeContinue reading “The Fox, an excerpt”

Cadillac Payback: Rising Tide Excerpt

I hear voices behind me, but I don’t have room for any more bodies in my space, so I ignore them. When I look back to Maria, she flings her eyes past me. She’s mad, too, that much is easy to see. But then the tension melts, her eyes drop impossibly wide, and her mouthContinue reading “Cadillac Payback: Rising Tide Excerpt”

Cadillac Payback Crew: Charlie

I have been completely up in the air about what to share in the Caddy ‘verse today. I was undecided until about an hour ago. I have chosen, because I’m the author publishing my own stuff and I can make this decision, to share with you a glimpse of the only member of the crewContinue reading “Cadillac Payback Crew: Charlie”

Cadillac Payback Crew: Frederick

I’ve always been the kind of guy to instigate action. Call me a catalyst, but if you want to do something, don’t fuck around about it. I’m also the kind of guy who gets the same half-cocked response from a sleek and functional weapon as I do from a hot bitch. That’s why I alwaysContinue reading “Cadillac Payback Crew: Frederick”

Cadillac Payback Crew: Joshua

Business is slow at the restaurant. Today is the top of the week, two hours to close, and I’m standing behind a bar shaded by neon blue lights. It’s Jack’s first night open since Noah got jumped, and whether it’s because it’s Monday, or the rumors of the shooting, the place is dead. I haven’tContinue reading “Cadillac Payback Crew: Joshua”

Cadillac Payback Crew: Maria

**Cadillac Payback Second Edition available March 18, 2021** **Cadillac Payback: Rising Tide coming April 15, 2021** Charlie, if your spirit lingers, guide my hand, and bless the bullet. If it flies, it does to honor you.  I make a slow sigh as I cross myself, a dramatic play, I admit, as my guests and myContinue reading “Cadillac Payback Crew: Maria”

Cadillac Payback Crew: Isaiah

**Cadillac Payback Second Edition will be available through Amazon on March 18, 2021.** **Cadillac Payback: Rising Tide will be available through Amazon on April 15, 2021** I make the joint’s finale as hard and consuming as possible, with the hope that if it blasts me well enough, I can fade from this conversation. Maybe ifContinue reading “Cadillac Payback Crew: Isaiah”

Home for Wayward Writers, Sun and Moon

There’s something strange in the air this week at the Home for Wayward Writers. I’d be lying if I said strange wasn’t the norm for this little niche of the internet, but this is…intriguing. Chills sprawl along my skin though it’s not cold. Not at all. The air is hot. The sky outside the tallContinue reading “Home for Wayward Writers, Sun and Moon”
