Mrs. Morrison was too busy to die. At least that’s what she told Death when she caught him creeping up on her from the corner of her eye. “I’m far too busy to die today,” she said without looking up from the biscuit dough she kneaded between strong calloused fingers. “Why don’t you come around in a bit?”
Things are Happening
It's been a minute since I've written a blog. Life has, to put it simply been beating the crap out of me lately. Most of my artistic pursuits, which had been my primary focus (other than my wife and cat) for the past several years have had to take a back seat to things like … Continue reading Things are Happening

I want to say … Continue reading Updates and Announcements:

I’m putting a new story up next week, but in the meantime I wanted to check in and tell you all what’s going on with my many artistic endeavors. First, big shout out to George Wagner for … Continue reading I haven’t quit yet!
