Lindisfarne By: Terry Tyler

Lindisfarne By:  Terry Tyler “Humans are fragile creatures, made up of broken hearts and broken promises.”  (unknown) One could be forgiven for believing human civilization is tough and unbreakable.  Indeed, look at the impressive man-made structures, complex currency systems, powerful militaries and unique systems of law and order which can be found from one end of the globe to the other.  Impressive to say the least!  However, human civilization is a very delicate entity.  History has clearly shown that it does not take much for it to fall apart and crumble.  What would you do if faced with such...

Suspicion By: Brenda Guiton

Suspicion By:  Brenda Guiton   It is said that we all have a secret in life.  Something from our past which we really do not want anyone to find out.  It could simply be a silly and embarrassing incident.  Or perhaps it could be much darker and sinister in nature- something which we would stop at nothing to hide from others.  However, the problem is that virtually nothing remains concealed forever.  It all eventually leaks out like a sieve.  The question then becomes how on earth do we react when this deep, dark secret is at risk of being...

Author Spotlight: Donna Siggers

I read and reviewed author Donna Sigger’s book, Broken in 2018.  I loved the novel and her writing.  That is why she is one of my favorite authors and has earned a position on my Author Spotlight page!  Please see her interview and upcoming work below: 1.  What inspired you to write a book? Writing has always been a hobby, but after acquiring a head injury I needed something to focus on to help me create a new memory system because I was struggling to remember what I’d done five minutes ago.  One of my closest friends (who was...

Terror in Boring Town By: Hoot N. Holler

Terror in Boring Town By: Hoot N. Holler Most people have a favorite season and preferred time of year.  Some enjoy the colorful leaves of autumn while others long for the fluffy, white snow which accompanies winter.  For me, summer is the best time of year.  The arrival of summer is truly magical.  The days become longer and once dormant life explodes back into action.  Flowers bloom and green grass grows as the dull and dreary landscape is transformed into a rich and vibrant one.  Thoughts turn to leisure at the beach or even new and grand adventures which...

Accepting What Is (Even the Flu!) By: Sedona Hutton

Accepting What Is (Even the Flu!) By:  Sedona Hutton Last week I came down with the flu. I had hot and cold flashes, a sore throat, a runny nose…the whole gamut. In my miserable state, I attempted to think positive thoughts to will away my sickness, but my body mocked my best efforts. Resigned, I stayed in bed for a couple of days. When I finally summoned a smidgeon of energy, a new awareness emerged. It felt good to rest! For many of us, November and December are busy months. I’ve been visiting kids and grandkids, working, writing, decorating,...

Doctor Hydenberg
really liked it
To come to the end of one’s life and be full of regret is a terrible thing for anyone to experience.  The whole idea of living with no excuses and loving with zero regrets, right out the window.  A life full of missed opportunities and w…

Guinevere: At the Dawn of Legend

There can be little doubt that childhood is an exciting and wonderful time.  It is filled with a variety of fresh and new experiences which are approached with a childlike innocence.  Be that as it may, such youthful exuberance can be qu…

What would it take to bring a vibrant and bustling Metropolis to its very knees?  The simple answer to this question is…not very much!  Any type of civilization takes a great deal of time and industry to create, but precious little effor…
