Over the last two years I've been focusing most of my time and attention on my Cast Down series or horror novels, and I enjoy using my lifetime of paranormal research to entertain readers (and hopefully give them a second thought about what might be "haunting" them). However, my first foray into writing was through … Continue reading By Raphael Bound
When did we go and get all entitled? I feel older by the day now saying stuff like, "When I was your age," and "When I was growing up..." Because it was a different world just a few decades ago. I remember working really hard and going without. I don't ever remember stimulus checks coming … Continue reading Age of Entitlement
It used to be a big thing to have a profession. To work at the same company for thirty years and retire from there and get a gold watch or something. "What do you do?" "I'm an architect." "I'm an accountant." "I'm a secretary." People in the town where I grew up in Fairfield County, … Continue reading What Do You Do?
Little known fact - I used to sell Avon. No, really. I did. I was looking for supplemental income, something I could do online, with a quality product and a company that'd been around forever. Hands down, AVON checked all my boxes. I wound up making enough to help some people out and got myself … Continue reading AVON Calling!
The law may not allow me to actually do that, but that's what my final wishes are. There, I said it. For the longest time I've assumed that Marty (my husband) would be the first to go. I mean, that's still the plan, but things don't always go according to plan. He is three years … Continue reading Scatter My Ashes on Richard Dean Anderson

To this day it is the only church I've ever attended that had a service on the Thursday evening before Easter. It was … Continue reading Maundy Thursday
Ugh. For the last full year it's just been an uphill battle with health issues. I thought I had a UTI, and after suffering for a good long while trying to get rid of it the regular old fashioned ways it turned out to be diabetes. So my whole everything got turned upside down and … Continue reading I Got WHAT Now?
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8902980/ Sometimes it's tough to be a horror fan. We cruise the streaming services for old favorites we can safely watch (Conjuring, Exorcist 1 or 3, Salem's Lot, Carrie, Audrey Rose just to name a few) and we look for those hidden gems we haven't seen before. Sometimes we get lucky and stumble upon something … Continue reading Widow’s Point
Anyone out there disagree with me when I say 2020 stinks on ice? Back in February I got sick. Weird symptoms. Seemed like a really bad UTI at times. Or something. My kidneys kind of hurt. I was tired and had some wicked brain fog. I lost my appetite. I was dying of thirst all … Continue reading I Got the Rona
