Author has written 66 stories for Horror, Young Adult, Supernatural, General, Romance, Sci-Fi, Western, Essay, Spiritual, Life, Fantasy, Thriller, Biography, Action, Mystery, and Humor.

J.M. Black has published her 50th story on fictionpress.com! Considering this a milestone of an achievement, she would like to thank everyone who has taken the time to read and review her stories here. Think about it, 50 stories…That's, well, that's a lot! It's not something that can be done over night or in two months. It's an achievement that takes years to write and release 50 short stories worthy to be read.

So, enjoy Black's latest story that makes the big 5-0!

It takes faith to write and even more faith to submit writings to a website where thousands, if not millions, of people can see my work. I don't have this faith blindly, I have it in the Lord.

First and foremost, I write for God. I know many of my stories are horror or written in a vey dark genre, but that doesn't mean God can't be glorified even in the dark.

I appreciate all reviews and criticism that will better help me to improve in writing. I also love to discover and read new work. Especially ones that inspire and makes one think.

I published my first novel, The Great Scheme of Things, through Kindle Direct Publishing and it is available for purchase on Kindle and on paperback! By following the link here, you can learn more about me, my stories, and get links to buy my book.

P.S. My second novel––"Ou Topos"––is now available on paperback and kindle on amazon!

God bless!
