Silent Screams- a Short Poem

Silent Screams- a Short Poem

Aging Gracefully

Aging Gracefully

Life is long, Life is hard, You never know what’s in your cards; We start out small and then we grow, And all the sudden we’re getting old. As the sun makes passes across the sky, We learn how to laugh, learn how to cry: We care about things, they fall to the side, To …

Scenery

Scenery

Scenery The most beautiful scenery, I think of all, Is the majesty of a waterfall. A Caribbean lagoon of clear blue Would have to come in at number two. Not to be discounted, let it be said, Is a sunset filled with lavender and red. In a lake in a meadow, it’s nice to find, …

Bio

I am a fiction writer;

A creator of larger-than-life heroes of ages gone by;
Great wizards tainted, and those who resist them;

War between interstellar travelers, both on this planet and far away;
Alien races intent on the annihilation of any being not their own,
and weaker ones in need of a savior- as well as the One who becomes their savior.

Clashes with bad people and dangerous places, where only one can survive.

When you get to my writing, sit back, hold on, and enjoy the ride!
