It’s Time – Read Vicious Memories For Free

A quick post, because I’m neck deep in drafting my next novel (The Sixth Point) while VICIOUS MEMORIES is on submission! In a moment of madness I decided to put some (which may soon turn into all!) of Vicious Memories up on Wattpad so people can read it for free, hopefully enjoy it, and offer

I Bore Myself Into Writing

Hello.  For today’s trick, I would like to present the greatest tool ever discovered.  Greater than the sword.  Greater than the pen.  Greater even than the wine-opener (just kidding I take that back).

“I don’t understand.  They told me they only wanted to help.” My voice came out in a whisper, my eyes wide as the moon overhead.
