favorite phrase of the day

“What is it?” He suppressed a yawn. He wasn’t tired; the day had just been extraordinarily long.

“Do you believe in ghosts?”

Mick almost laughed. “I grew up in Appalachia, in Baxter fucking Harlan County, Kentucky, and you’re asking me this? This whole county is haunted by something. Why?”

Appalachian gothic fiction writer - my works reflect a love of literature flavored by the darkness and magic residing in these ancient mountains. In my spare time, I'm a Simmer, I tumbl, I journal, but I always have a very strange sense of humor. I have lived away from the mountains and lived deep in the mountains. I currently live in Central Kentucky with my lifepartner and his cat. The mountains, their culture, their superstitions, their particular magics, will always be in my blood.
