Sunlight dances down
Streaming through the evergreens
Lighting the pathway

To be honest, I was originally drawn to this book because of its cover. Addicted to anything vintage, I knew that this was a book to read.
Set in the small town of Fell, New York it follows the story of Carly Kirk who is on a mission to find out what happened to her aunt Viv Delaney 25 years earlier. Viv disappeared from The Sun Down Motel in the middle of the night, with no trace. Presumed dead, Carly attempts to piece together any clues to come to a resolution.
The book was an easy read, and the stories between the two characters mesh well to create a clear story. However, one of the reasons that I wanted to read it is that it was said to be creepy; this was one part that I was disappointed with. To me, there was the potential to make the story have a creepy factor, but it fell short.
That being said, I really enjoyed reading this novel. If you’re looking for a thriller/mystery I highly recommend grabbing this book and giving it a try.
Wow! 2019 flew by with several bumps in the road. Mainly the only thing that was completely left behind was my writing, and blogging. I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything; stay tuned for more soon!
One of my resolutions for the new decade is to post more for you all, while keeping in line with my writing goals.
Here’s to 2020! Let’s make it a great one!
Battered by the elements
An unsteady journey across the chasm
The boards splinter underfoot
The sound echoing across the picturesque landscape
Desperately grasping for the fraying rope
Teetering on the edge
The snap of the twine inaudible
And for a moment I am suspended
Weightless, my descent inevitable
I relish the feeling
Free of all fear, knowing what is to come
… The end
A beacon to the heavens
Once graced with an unmatched grandeur
Broken down by the wrath of mortals
As the stones begin to tumble
Death and destruction wage on
Illness spreading from coast to coast
Earth on the verge of annihilation
At the hands of humanity
And all we do is watch
As the tower crumbles

The raven watches from his perch high in the tree
His expression unchanging
Knowledge way beyond his years
As if he knows all that has happened,
And what is yet to come
Like an hourglass of time,
Each grain of sand slowly falling away
Until all that remains is dust
