Author has written 9 stories for Horror, Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance, and Life.

One for sorrow, two for joy,

Three for a girl, four for a boy,

Five for silver, six for gold,

Seven for a secret not to be told,

Eight for a wish, nine for a kiss,

Ten for a bird that's best to miss.

Who am I?

I am the morbid mistress of macabre, the writer of curious tales with even more curious endings.

I am the puppet-master of the lines recited in the auditorium of my skull, as frustrated as an actor, or maybe even an author.

But, above all...I am a magpie. An introverted corvid with the minimum intelligence that my genetic and molecular structure will allow. I am as wild-eyed and as hungry as a child, searching out all the bobbles and trinkets that flash in my eyes--searching. Searching for what, you may ask? The answer is simple: something new. For you see, I am not only a magpie, but I am a revolutionary, starving for answers as well as for questions. So go on, don't be afraid of a little ol' bird like me—after all, I only stand for sorrow.

Want to know more? Ask.

Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls! Step right up--it's a dream!

Behind this curtain lies a nightmarish realm of your most whimsical fantasies, your darkest dreams, your most twisted reveries, your every fear...

I can supply anything your heart desires, but I'm warning you...it comes with a price.

She is paralyzed. She is catatonic. She is spineless. She is a matter that even the angels and the demons and the parasites in her bowels don't care for. She is frozen by her own terror and by her own lack of will, her own heavy heart. But, she is spineless, and this is her story.
