31 Days of Horror

I gathered the trailers for 31 horror movies I liked. They’re not all five stars rated but still recommended it. Check them out if you’re looking for a horror movie to watch during this spooky season indoors. Of course, these are not my absolute favorite and not even close to the number of horror movies … Continue reading 31 Days of Horror

Everyday Windows

“Who cares,” said the young woman who rarely spoke during group sessions. “Heidi, why do you say that? You don’t care?” the counselor sat back, waiting for her to respond.  “I don’t, but I guess hearing you talk about it as if it’s so important inspired me,” her raspy voice barely audible to the people … Continue reading Everyday Windows


               “It’s been 500 years since the pandemic started. I mean, not really 500 years, but might as well.

Here’s the problem: my brain hates me. I don’t want to just disclose every detail about my … Continue reading Downward Spiral

Primum Ash

Cars littered every road leading up to Ash. It’s a miracle this desolate place became a town at all. If you didn’t come prepared with an extra couple of gallons of gas, you’d end up litter on those roads too. John didn’t know about this place before he found it on a 1950’s map. He … Continue reading Primum Ash
