My story, "Mother Love," is now in print, in the first issue of Deadlights Horror Fiction Magazine. To purchase a copy, go to:

We live in a small town with limited entertainment options, so we decided to make some pretty major changes to keep away the boredom.

Since I'm female, I have the usual very popular changes to choose from: purses, shoes, and diets. The only one I didn't choose was purse...

Tomorrow is our seven-month anniversary of living in Buffalo. We feel like this is home. 

I've been asked what I did to integrate into the community. So here goes...


I've always thought volunteering is a great idea, and that giving back to the community is impor...

I'm sitting at my computer with a warm cup of coffee, watching the snow smack the windows, and grateful that I'm not outside in the brisk 21 degree weather (it feels like 3 degrees in the wind). It's our first December snowstorm, and I'm waiting for the snow plow to cl...

I dreaded Septembers in Los Angeles, when temperatur...

I love reading the Buffalo Bulletin, the newspaper for Johnson County. The articles are objective and often downright positive. I can find out who was fined for what, check how many people were transported by ambulance and when, see who got married, and best of all, re...

This morning I woke up with a migraine. What a perfect time to break out the UFO food dehydrator. All I had to do was cut up the sweet potato I bought yesterday, stick the wedges on the racks, start the food dehydrator, and walk away. Our spoiled four-legged children c...

If the zombie apocalypse ever comes, I'm pretty sure that the most valuable survivors will be the ones who know how to grow, preserve, and cook food. I might as well sacrifice myself to the zombies now.

I've always had a disinterested relationship with food. When I was...
