I'm afraid. Do you know how difficult it is to be afraid when you are expected to always be strong? How hard it is to be truly scared of losing something that means everything and having to listen to the advice from those who have no concept of what it means to love something other...

A review of Roll the Beautiful Bones 🙂 ❤
“In the small town of Skull Creek, death is on the prowl. Some say that it is a copycat killer out for his moment of fame, but Jacqueline DePasse and her diligent crew of detectives soon learn that it is so much more than a tribute to the only known and convicted female serial killer in captivity, Cathleen Carson. Jacqueline with the assistance of crime reporter Jake Michaels and her team soon discover that one victim has survived and that she will be the one that must Roll the Beautiful Bones and find the key to stopping a killer before he strikes again.”
Roll the Beautiful Bones by Melanie McCurdie is an unflinching journey into the serial killer–copycat killer phenomenon. It’s a short read, but there is so much intrigue and bloodshed contained within that, even though you’ll be left wanting more, you won’t be disappointed. I, for one, love…

Little Billy walked home from school that day, same as every day, past the old playground next to the abandoned church. Not sure why it was even still around…there were weeds everywhere and all the equipment was falling apart. Only one swing on the swingset was still intact. As he passed by he could hear the chains squeaking when the wind blew upon it. He wasn’t sure why but it creeped him out a lot. He wished he didn’t have to go anywhere near it but it was the quickest way home.
He had left school later than usual because Tommy was waiting for him outside the doors. Tommy was the school bully and he knew if he’d left when he was supposed to right after school he’d have been in really bad shape by the time he got home. It had happened before and he didn’t want to deal…

I could climb the stairs again and again yes I know that - I do know that its the accurate definition of insanity, but - but what if it was just as difficult to stand in one place staring at the door for eternity never knowing that those stairs laying there beyond the doorway lead upwards...

It is the last straw, this, the last time. This time his whore came to our home, dressed, or rather undressed, expecting him to be ready for her. In our bed. Not the first time, but certainly the final time. I’ve paid, and dearly for his indiscretions, physically, emotionally, having to swallow my pride and... Continue Reading →
This morning I did something I have never done before - while the children were bickering and the telephone was ringing and the television blaring - I snuck off to the powder room and quietly closed the door and then I slid down to the floor then with my elbows on my knees and my...

What are we but an insouciant society heaving with tarmac nightmares? The point is the scrum, not the blood...or reward And such sociable birds we be, Angels with vestigial wings that loom around the truths like a massive Henge. What could be used to excise those who claim ignorance when it is actually arrogance? Flaying... Continue Reading →

I didn't come wrapped in a bow or pretty paper, instead I came home a raving silent mess full of anxiety and nightmares fresh from Hell. My wife said I was a gift, then, and said I should have died there at the end of our life together. She was right. I know I killed my... Continue Reading →
The sandwich remains uneaten and forgotten, long since ravaged by mold. Beside it, the milk in the glass is nothing but crusty, yellow mud. The lunch now a mockery of what once was.
He leans against the doorway, peering into the fruitless dark of his son’s room. Clothes cling to his skin. Thirty minutes prior, he stood within the foyer, dripping in static silence after stumbling in from the rain. He realizes that nothing carries weight anymore. Except maybe his sodden clothes.
He wavers. A car passes somewhere in the night. Light cuts rudely through the room; shadows jump stiffly about the walls, scurrying into corners. Stuffed animals squat atop the bed, solemn smiles unflinching across their faces. A sliver of headlight touches the uneaten sandwich, illuminating the plate like a stage. It fades away—the show over, curtain drawn on yet another day. He hesitates, breath snagging in his…

4:30 am. I'm awake and staring out the window at the snow, wishing I was asleep and not witnessing horror. But instead I am, and so are the deer busily scampering, their hooves a clip clop of wood on wood against the asphalt. It's cold and my smoke is dwindling, but I stay anyway with... Continue Reading →
