Author has written 30 stories for Horror, General, Fable, Sci-Fi, Supernatural, Humor, Life, Romance, Thriller, and Spiritual.

I’m published! Buy my book, “My Private Collection” here:

A personal collection of poetry, prose and writings from Emerald Anna-Ericka Behrens, from 1992-2012. Contains digital artwork and photographs by the author.

Contains stories: Missing Person and The Lonely Soul.

It's time my stories were read, instead of them just sitting in my computer drive, whispering paranoid gossip to each other.

So I'm going to publish some online here and hope that people read them, review them and hopefully enjoy them. My stories are best viewed in Times New Roman format with 3/4 paragraph spacing. (‘cause it just looks better that way, so yeah)

I may move my stories to WritersCafe.org, depending on what happens here… ()

I’m published also on: NOVELJOY.COM, under the same name as here: BroodingOne. But I don’t bother posting to that site anymore, or anywhere else for that matter. Why write at all if no one reads it? I haven’t figured that out and I probably never will. Passing the time until you die is a terrible habit.

Beyond the Marsh by Abracadabra41 reviews
I was in the marshes. A dreadful gloom hung over everything, in every fiber of the drooping moss, in every bit bog that sucked at my feet, in every dead tree that stood crookedly, all around. It was in the mist that I despised more than the rest of it, which shielded my eyes from finding my way in the infernal marsh. Based on a dream. Please R&R!
