quotes of the day

Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live. – Oscar Wilde

We tell lies when we are afraid, … afraid of what we don’t know, afraid of what others will think, afraid of what will be found out about us. But every time we tell a lie, the thing that we fear grows stronger — Tad Williams, Spoken by Dr. Morgenes, To Green Angel Tower (part of Memory, Sorrow and Thorn)

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.
