That fight. That damn fight. I wish I could go back in time and just tell a teacher and not fight Randy and Josh in the cafeteria. Now, please understand, I’d still protect Sophie in a heartbeat. I just wish my parents hadn’t gotten in the car that day. Now, as I watch both of their closed caskets...

May had always been a hard month. School was almost over and the search for a fun summer vacation began. Of course, with the end of school came the stress of upcoming finals and planning out the following year’s classes. My friends and I would have study groups every weekend to prepare for our exam...

Rosalyn had just gotten ready for bed when she received a text from her parents telling her they were going to be out of town on a business trip for ten days.

Running Across the kitchen and into the dining room. Jumping From one couch cushion to the next. Hugging Your parents after they got you the toy you wanted at Christmas. Crying When the rerun of your favorite childhood show doesn’t play. Screaming When your dad tickles you until you can...

This is nothing new to me, considering I had attended church every Sunday since I was born. My husband, Marshal, was also a religious man. We di...

The imbecile chattered on and on with a corpse down in the courtyard below my tower. My captor, a fearsome necromancer known as Torial. That's what the world believed, I was sure of it.
