Homefront

"Don't grab him like that," Mary said sternly, pulling her son Carson away from Sam. Sam looked down at their son, seeing the red indentations left on Carson's arm. He felt something catch in his throat as he saw the boy's wet eyes fill up like the ocean tide. Sam looked up at Mary, her ...

New Title? Memorial Day

I've been throwing around some ideas for the title of Frigid Nights because maybe FN just isn't right. It's been more of a working title since I've been more focused on actually writing the thing and not what I should call it. While I've been thinking that I need to change the title, I haven't given ...

Baltimore County Officer Down, Criminal Kid With Lengthy Rap Sheet Charged

A Baltimore kid with a lengthy criminal record ran over Police Officer Amy Caprio in a stolen Jeep, killing her.

Do you want arrests, or do you want to let carjackers walk away without so much as a slap on the wrist?

Just Start

I started writing FN yesterday and continued where I left off in a very important chapter. My goal was to hit 500 words and within an hour, I'd written 600 and didn't even realize I'd gotten that far. I thought I'd written maybe 200 or a little more, but I didn't expect 600. At that ...
