There was a special pain in the moment she realized years of investment had made her a thing discarded. Her two-way road to truth was a one-way lane fraught with lies, all the sweet words in the world still amounting to the wrong direction.

Alive and well in the Rocky Mountains. I'm a fantasy writer who also dabbles in poetry, short stories, and map making. My Ontyre tales are an alternative fantasy experience, the stories rich in mystery, adventure, and romance. Alternative fantasy? Not quite steampunk. Not quite gothic. In truth, the real magic is in those who discover what's within.
