From Past to Present

A compass, two coins, and a key. The items sat on the ancient map in the center of Michael’s desk. As the latest in five generations of sailors, he kept telling people he was living his best life, yet he wasn’t so sure of late. He sailed into the Harbor the day after finding the...

The Cost at the Crossroads

Everyone in town always talked about the deals that could be made at the crossroads down the street. Damon didn’t believe, but he was willing to try anything to save her.

Lake House

The house sat on a wide dock over the lake. Michael stood leaning against the railing looking out over the water.

The Haunting

It’s been ten years now since the day I last stepped foot past the fence line and into the swamp once owned by my family. The scars from that night have not healed, and I doubt they ever will. My cousins James, Beth, Joshua, and I were spending the summer at our grandparent’s house in... Continue Reading →

A Responsability from Grandpa

I grew up being raised by my grandfather. He was a wonderful man, and I loved him with everything I was. He was also one of the strangest men you could ever meet. The man lived to tell stories. When I was growing up, he would tell stories about the adventures he had been on... Continue Reading →
