Complete Control – Newest Publication from House of Erotica Press!

I’m thrilled to announce the publication of my short story, Bindings. It’s in a lovely anthology called Complete Control, from House of Erotica publications. For my UK friends, click HERE to purchase the e-book from Amazon UK. For my US friends, click HERE to purchase the e-book from

A fellow writer-friend also has a story in this anthology, and I hope to submit several more stories in the near future. In the meantime, I would love for you to purchase this and enjoy reading the juicy stories within – hey, it costs less than a burger!!

And when you read it, if you’d like to leave an encouraging review, I would really appreciate that as well. Word-of-mouth is the main way small, independent works become known, and so reviews do make an important difference.

When she grew up, she avoided photos like the plague.

I think it was because she knew photos never truly caught her. You know how some people, photogenic people, look just like themselves in every photo? They’re full of life and look natural and easy. Like the photo is the best of them, the sum total of what and who they are.

She wasn’t like that. She always looked stiff and self-conscious in them, like they were some kind of identification or evidence she didn’t want circulated. Photos of her looked like the stuff she had left behind, like potato peelings, or wood shavings. The stuff that was unnecessary to the task at hand. The stuff ultimately thrown out with the other garbage.

She said she wanted to be remembered in 3-D; moving about, talking, laughing, singing, laughing, crying.

It was hard enough to get to know her in real life; in photos, she almost wasn’t there. In every picture, even the not-half-bad ones, she looked blurry, dead-eyed, uninteresting. That was really it, wasn’t it? Photos made her look dull and unremarkable – a person you probably wouldn’t care to know.

Photos, she said, were proof you had been here. Photos told a story; photos remembered. All she would leave behind were words, a voice, a song. They would have to tell her story.

She was only passing through. In time, no one would remember what she looked like.

Surely, wherever you are, you must feel us. Those who loved you in secret, never wanting to call attention to our devotion. Those who watched your every move and dreamed of your voice in low times and high times, and imagined you as a friend, and liked what we saw.

Surely you must feel us, our thoughts, our grief, our tears, shed equally in secret. They must rise up to wherever you are, like incense on a gentle breeze, buoyed up by all the love they ride upon like a magic carpet.

I see you riding them like a quiet wave, with a smile on your face, both surprised and delighted, happy and content and

You will ride a little higher today.

A Green Thought In A Green Space

On LiveJournal, Mywitch has created an Advent Calendar of fanart delicious enough to warm the cockles of every heart. She took our requests, and gave us a daily delight of incredible art, full of joy, silliness, poignancy, cheer and love. She is so immensely talented. When I whispered in her ear MY request, she said, “Why don’t you write the fic, and I’ll illustrate?”

It was too much fun to pass up. And this is what happened.

A special thanks to the Queen of Betas, Stgulik, for making this story better because that’s what she does so wonderfully well. Also, thank you to Mywitch, for being such a beautiful, talented friend, who encouraged me to write this. You are so incredibly gifted and generous and talented, and I’m honored to be your friend.

The title comes from the TV series The Tudors. I don’t remember the context; I just liked the way it sounded.

2016-10-31 Witchfinger; Halloween Challenge

Title: Witchfinger
Challenge: General Halloween
Team: Death Eaters
Length: 5 X 100
Rating: PG-13
Warning: AU
A/N: This is just a little fantasy brought to you courtesy of the series Salem, when I asked myself the question: what would happen to a real witch in 1692 if they were brought to the stockade to be burned for witchcraft?  By the way, this is not my circus, not my monkeys, and because it’s un-beta’d, it’s also not as polished as it should be. But Halloween is upon us, soooo……

Dedicated to mywitch, whose company here is gloriously inspiring.

2016-09-04 The Hard-Boiled Flip; Flip Your Style Challenge

Title: The Maltese Hippogryff, Part One
Team: DEs
Challenge: Flip Your Style
Rating: PG
Length: 4 X 100
Summary: This is a great challenge, but I was at a loss. I’ve done angst, comedy, smut, HEA UHEA, UST and PWP here, so what could I flip? Then I asked myself, what if I made Hermione a femme fatale and Severus a Humphrey Bogart character?

This is the answer. I think you will agree, I shouldn’t quit my day job. SSHG drama in the style of Raymond Chandler.
