Haiku Friday – Amuse & Irate

14 Jul

“If your work isn’t exciting, doesn’t stir the emotions, where’s the challenge? Where’s the progress if you always play it safe?”

~Michael Douglas

I’m a writer of horror, thriller and epic/dark fantasy. From the time I was a young kid, writing has been my passion. I’ve always been a writer—I just didn’t know it until much later. For me, it is easier to express my thoughts on paper than through the spoken word. I enjoy making people feel an array of emotions with my writing. I like my audience to laugh one moment, cry the next and clench their jaws after that.

When I write I feel alive. I feel like I am being my true self. I love to entertain with my writing and stir the soul and for some reason a lesson or two will always creep up at the end for my readers to learn.

I write to amuse

I write to touch and change moods

Sometimes I provoke

Writers Quote Wednesday – OBSESSION

18 May

Welcome everyone to Writers Quote Wednesday! Today’s theme is Obsession. So what is obsession? It’s an idea or thought that continually preoccupies or intrudes on a person’s mind.


I can relate with this quote because this is pretty much how I feel.

Lately, when I’m not writing, I’m thinking about writing.
