Hey Love!…

I met my wife in a library, introduced to her by an English Teacher. That's oddly poetic to me, for a wannabe writer to meet the love of his life in such a way. If the me of today were to hop into a time machine and go back and visit the 16-year-old me of yesterday,... Continue Reading →

Go Kinfolk, Go Kinfolk!

When I started driving, whenever I would leave the house, particularly with a group of friends, my mother would yell out, before I could even get out of the door, "Seatbelts, Speed limit." This was a reminder for us to wear our seatbelts and drive the speed limit. She still says that to me to this... Continue Reading →

In Sheep’s Clothing

Part I Damien Sills Jr. sat alone in the driver seat of his black four-door sedan. A raspy voice whispered to him the lyrics of a song that he had heard at least a hundred times before. The music rolled and curled through the interior of the vehicle like smoke from a cigar or cigarette. The... Continue Reading →

Gunsmoke…

I used to be convinced that I would die young. And by that I mean, there was a certain time, I think around the age of 11 or 12, that I was pretty sure I would not live past the age of 23. I don't know what it was that gave me that idea. Perhaps... Continue Reading →

Goblin’d

Part I Chapter 1 - Bedtime "Time for bed buddy boy." "Daddy, no! I don't wanna go to bed!" Edward smiled at his son, "I know you don't Bud, but you have to go to sleep now so we can get up tomorrow and start a new adventure." "An adventure?!" The small boy's eyes lit up at... Continue Reading →
