The Hole in the Desert

Troy slouched over the chaffing bar, cursing when wood chips clung to his forearms. Then he peered over his shoulder for the tenth time. Strangers played pool in a dim corner while lapping down beers. Others were enticed by the 80-inch flat screen that blared blowing whistles and a screaming crowd. Troy dropped his face ...

A Trinity of Wicked Tales- Jilted

In this collection of dark tales lives are savagely twisted, inner demons are reawakened and deception reigns supreme. A quest for a fix turns bloody for two heroin addicts as their vicious endeavors land them into a gruesome pitfall. A marketing executive and car salesmen are deceived by the ones they love. Armed with rage, ...

Home of the Condemned

My mother and I were up late that Saturday watching a host of scary movies and unpacking boxes of clothes and trinkets. It’d only been a few hours since we finished unloading the moving truck so we had our work cut out for us. Though we barely put a dent in the luggage, Dad tapped ...

A Cover Change?

Which cover do you like best? The book is a collection of gruesome short stories (suspense/ dark fiction) where the characters react in unspeakable ways to jilted love. It is sexual in nature and could pass as a thriller (this read is defiantly NOT for the light-hearted). I like abstract art so I wanted to play ...

Sibling Rivalry

Holly cursed as the heavy snowflakes coated her mountain town in a sleek, white layer of ice, forcing her to drive undesirably slow. “I can’t believe you asked Mike what his plans were when his parents were on their deathbeds! You insulted my fiancé and his parents!” Holly snapped. “Well, you had plans. So I thought it ...

Santa

None of the kids in town, or the world, would dream of being coined a trouble maker. That was thanks to the disturbing Christmas folklores our parents told us. These sick fairy tales were passed on from generation to generation, forcing children to believe. And if they didn’t, there wouldn’t be any presents or worse, ...

The First Ride is Free

Cloe owed it to her infant son, Sean, and lackluster boyfriend, John, to pick up a night job. How else would they survive? Certainly, not with her retail job where the pay failed to cover her new expenses. Her prayers were answered by a mobile app which offered her a gig driving strangers around. How ...

Happier Beginnings

Haley saw her fraternal twins, Cole and Calvin, off to prom earlier that evening. She rented them each a luxury sports car while Kevin, her husband, gave them $500 each. Aware that the gifts would be used as ammunition to conduct mischief, she couldn't help but smile. She was proud of them. Each scored academic and sports ...

Junk for Two- A Short from ‘A Trinity of Wicked Tales’

Trev rested uneasily in the driver’s seat while Suzie pawed around a sterling silver jewelry box. She cursed her shaken fingers whenever she fumbled its contents onto the garbage-filled floor. After digging around fast-food wrappers, grocery bags, and several used needles, she hoisted a platinum bracelet in front of her face, using the late moon ...
