Abby’s arms ached.
Her daily jogs had done nothing to prepare her for carrying a thirty-five-pound
sleeping toddler all night over rough terrain. As dawn broke, she shifted her
son yet again and stifled a yawn.

Lance
stopped abruptly in front of her. “Look,” he pointed down the slope at a
half-dozen red rooftops peeking through the pine trees.

They
stood watching a moment, but didn’t see any signs of life.

“Do
you think it’s safe?” Abby whispered.

Lance
brought the rifle to his shoulder. “Only one way to find out. C’mon.”

She
trailed behind her husband, her heart thudding as they got closer to the
collection of cabins. With every step, leaves crunched underfoot, making her
cringe, but still nothing stirred. Even the birds were silent.

Lance
glanced back, then nodded at…

Words of Destiny

Okay…so it’s been forever. *insert excuse—NOPE! No excuses. Why? Because I have none. I’ve somehow let this little thing called writing get away from me. But see…it’s not little. In fact, it’s huge! Huge for my mind, huge for my spirit, huge just all around.

**Heads up, no idea where this post is going, other than in a very honest and transparent direction. If that’s not really your jam, I TOTALLY get it. Hop on outta’ here if you need.**

Writing is so much more than a daily sit at the computer, contemplating the next story, character, or plot point. It’s freedom. At least, it always has been for me anyway. Writing is an escape; that moment of breath in the midst of an otherwise chaotic world. And, I know I’m not the only one who feels this way: pent up, eager to smash down walls and rebuild cities…

Non-Marvel/DC Superheroes

This list took way longer than I expected. Here I am thinking there were just a handful of superheroes outside the DCEU/MCU, but after just an hour of research, I remembered… the hundreds of heroes from the 80s and 90s that held down the superhero genre. Before the Avengers, alongside Tim Burton’s batman, there were some real gems out there. So I’ve put together a list of ten favorites, short clips. I’m sure everyone will enjoy and reminisce. But first, here are a few honorable mentions that didn’t make the cut. Dash from Incredibles, Megamind (not Metro Man, lol), Captain Planet (yes!!!!), The Rocketeer (who remembers this one?), David Dunn from M. Night Shyamalans Unbreakable and Hellboy. No, hellboy didn’t make the list *ducks*. Read More

I am The Terror

“It’s the only way to honor their names. The only way to show the world what he truly is. This is not about you. It is about them and the many other innocents who died because of these abominations. He, and everyone like him, is a disgrace to the human race. Everyone won’t see that now, but they will…they will.
“You must bring terror to him and those alike before there is peace. And NOW is the time to do it. They will call you a killer, a monster, but if it is to save the future of humanity, so be it.
“Now, get out of the car, and do it.” Read More
