Writing Through the Dark

There comes a time in every writer's endeavors that the story takes a walk on the dark side. The characters begin to act strange, things become more unpredictable by the letter, the story seems to be escaping your grasp until eventually you're stuck with no idea of how to continue. Of course, you have a... Continue Reading →

The Keys to Storytelling

Over the past few months I've been questioning what it is I write about. I say horror and Dark Fantasy but, for some reason, that' snot entirely true. Well, the genres are but the essence isn't quite there. In most of my stories, if you've read them, have a lot of style and entertainment but... Continue Reading →

Embracing the Darkness (Philosophy)

In life, we all go through dark times that teach us to become something we never thought we could be, something we never dreamed of, something we never thought ourselves capable.
