“What the hell?” Sascha’s mate uttered fearfully. “It’s just the wind, Maria. Go back to sleep.” Sascha urged as she rubbed her lover’s shoulders. “Why am I burning? Look at these spots on my stomach.” Maria bent forward to examine herself. “The wind didn’t do this.” “I’ve got them too. Maybe they are spider bites?” Sascha offered disdainfully. “I’ve had spider bites, this is not the same thing. These are burns, like someone dropped acid or hot coals on us.” “I’ll go check out the living room.” Sascha exited the bed, pulling a shirt over her head. “I’m going too.” Maria got up and together they crept toward their bedroom door. Sascha grabbed the doorknob and reluctantly began turning it before a force twisted the knob and blew the door back op…

She grimaced and peered through the glass of her window. “I can’t see a thing, it’s so dark out there. This creeps me out, I knew we should have left that party earlier. We wouldn’t be stuck out here if I hadn’t been so busy goss…

Our young couple in love find themselves in front of a spooky house....just after they hit something on the road...let's see what happened-




"Before she could ask any more irritating questions, he jumped out and slammed the driver’s side door shut. The autumn air felt crisp against his cheeks, and he wrapped one arm around his midsection, fighting the chill as he walked. “Dadgum women, talk, talk, talk, I’d rather be out here in the pitch black in the middle of nowhere than listen to her sometimes.” The realization suddenly hit that he was indeed in the boondocks, and he felt uneasy walking back toward the site of the…

Are Bigfoot Trackers "Cool"? - Tuesday Tales

Image
Ahoy Fellow Fathomers! Happy Tuesday and time for another edition of Tuesday Tales. This week I take you again to my new paranormal WIP, Finding Love and Bigfoot- a part of my Critter Getter series. For our journey to the unknown, I present the word prompt "cool".


“Maybe tomorrow you can talk to me more about this research of yours. I admit, you have me intrigued, Caleb Chandler.” Kalista inhaled deeply and looked toward the gear shift. “I guess we better head home, in case the storm moves in again.”

“Will you please let me know you made it? Maybe…call me or something?” Caleb asked sheepishly.

“Definitely.” Kalista revved the ignition with her foot, projecting the image of coolness. Her insides danced with butterflies sitting in the seat he normally occupied.

“Thank you for another great day on the river, even though we didn’t get a second catfish fry.” Leandra bubbled with a beaming smile. “This is more fun than we’ve had in a long time, no matter how strange it all is.…

a Knife?...Searching for Bigfoot Tuesday Tales

Ahoy Fellow Fathomers! Happy Tuesday and time for another edition of Tuesday Tales. This week I take you a new paranormal WIP, Finding Love and Bigfoot- a part of my Critter Getter series. For our journey to the unknown, I present the word prompt "knife".


“There is no way you just said…bigfoot.” Kalista said solemnly, almost under her breath, still inspecting the muddied, bloody smudges all over her car window. “You wouldn’t get a crazier response from me if you had come at me with a knife.”
“Yes, I did, Kalista, and I’m not joking.” Caleb said just as earnestly, admiring the evidence all over the glass. “By the way, I’m not the violent type. The only knife I use is a fillet knife on the catfish.”
“I know tracking bigfoot is a big part of your business, and I’m sure tourists pay good money for a spooky thrill, but, seriously, you can be truthful with me. Your secret is safe.”
Owen interjected into the conversation, his eyes dancing eagerly . “We’ve been tracking bigfoot for …

Contest Give-Away Weekend! Try Your Luck!

(I do not own a red and white striped cap, or else maybe I'd post a picture rockin' one.)

Where’s Waldo? No, not really, Fellow Fathomers, but, Where in the World is Davee Jones? That’s the big question! This weekend The Locker hosts another great giveaway contest sponsored by my publisher, Secret Cravings Publishing. The lucky winner from my blog will receive a PDF copy of Ruby’s Dance. How many of you really think about where you’re from? So many times I host visitors and they want to see and do some of the many activities available within my location. (Although I proclaim myself a tried and true Okie, I no longer live in my home state of Oklahoma.) However, I’m almost embarrassed to admit I, myself, have not explored as much of my adopted home turf as some visitors or tourists! I encourage, or maybe even challenge, you to choose something within a days’ drive of your hometown and experience something brand new! Now, on to try to guess- Where is Davee? Ø“My” airport is la…
