What’s your earliest memory of writing?

Writing a short story inspired by an episode of Thundercats in 4th grade.

I love Anson from Earthly Concerns; he has a generosity and capacity to love that is commendable.

The Lovely, idealistic Tracy Whitney from Sidney Sheldon’s If Tomorrow Comes. Perfection.

What was the last nice thing that you did for someone else?

I bought eclairs from a German bakery for someone special.

Book Bags and Cat Naps of course!

Tell us the last dream you remember

Uggh, it involved a tub that had the ghosts of dead children in it and I could see them all coming out of it.  

Say something nice to my cats before you leave us today

“Some people say that cats are sneaky, evil, and cruel. True, and they have many other fine qualities as well.”
-Missy Dizick

Thank you to Xavier for visiting today!  

About Earthly Concerns
Earthly ConcernsBetween love and loss, there is obligation…

It was a peaceful night when Barrett and his daughter were driving home… then something happened.  Something sinister.

Between shadow and light, there is uncertainty…

Now the only person Barrett can turn to for help is Anson, a man gifted with psychic abilities beyond reason. But Anson is also his ex-boyfriend, a man whose heart he’d already broken.

If you can see, you have to help.

As Anson delves deeper into the circumstances surrounding Barrett’s accident, he begins to realize that he’s not only in a race against time, but in a battle against his own broken heart and the terrifying understanding that whatever has taken Barrett’s child is a force of evil beyond anything either man has ever encountered.

And between decision and consequences, there are… Earthly Concerns
