      Someone has been reading my short stories or so it appears. An article was posted in the Facebook news feeds and I had to go and check it out. The story does sound a bit farfetched but hey, I suggested this in my short story that I wrote years ago, Bed Bug Ridden.[1] Apparently, some woman decided to burn down her house because of a bad infestation of bed bugs. I wrote Bed Bug Ridden back around 2010 as a short story and you can read it in my Time Pieces Collection which has stories that are funny, simple, short and sweet with a touch of some suspense.

    A writing comrade from New Hampshire is releasing her newest book on Friday, November 10. She writes Urban Fantasy, science fiction, and military romance.

    How Many Secrets does Wonder Woman Have?

      For the last three weeks, I busied myself reading a book assigned to my America’s Themes and Dreams class. I must say, for a non-fiction book, this book was a great read.
