The Stranger (Part 2)

I looked to my left and to my right thinking he couldn't possibly have been talking to me.  A man that looked like that, well, they don't usually talk to women who, well, looked like I did.

"Where were you headed?  I honestly don't mind the detour.  I'm in no hurry, in fact, I really hate going to these stupid parties.  I'm no good at mingling," he said with a smile noticing my hesitation.

I cleared my throat and tried to gain my composure.  This was not like me to even be…

Playing With Reality- An Interactive Performance Ensemble!

I am a part of a NYC-based interactive performance ensemble, Playing With Reality.  We want to remind people the power of play and to empower through interactive experiences. For the past 2 years, our focus has been theater, inviting audience volunteers to become the protagonist of a fictional story created and lived on the spot. It’s been life-changing for some. And just plain fun for others. …

The Great and Godly Game of Hide and Seek

Why is it we all seem to struggle so?  Why so much dissatisfaction? We never seem quite satisfied with who we are, with what life brings, with where we are in ourselves.  It’s almost as if, were we satisfied, we fear there’d be no more reason for us to live; as if the Creator might descend on some big burst of light and pluck us straight away:



“This one’s done! Beam him up, Scotty.”



I’ve had that bizarre fear myself, the fear that if I allow myself to feel satisfied, happy…

An introduction to my e-book The Eight of Swords

I wrote The Eight of Swords towards the end of last year.  It was a story burning a hole in my head from the very moment I had the idea.  I'm not a patient soul so despite the fact I'm supposed to be rewriting a novel I wrote years ago, I started on the short story idea as soon as I had some spare time. 

It turned out well, so I decided to give it a go as an e-book and published it via Amazon…

A Memorable Review

Strawberry Fields, A Book of Short Stories is a collection of childhood memories that in the beginning do not seem to have a common thread weaving through a meticulously rich and expressive fabric of the migrant life. Written in five parts, Joaquín’s,…

The Book I've been Reading

“Edgar Allan Poe Complete Tales and Poems” is what I’ve been reading lately. Another eighteenth birthday gift it contains 73 short stories and 48 poems. So far I’ve read four of the short stories so I’ve barely managed to scratch the surface, but I think it’s a must have: Edgar Allen Poe is a great writer and he writes on a variety of subjects, and has a vast vocabulary, it keeps me thinking and I do love it. So: “Edgar Allan Poe Complete Tales and Poems” not for the simpleminded or the… Continue

Weekly Report

Well, this week has been pretty good in my writing world. I got back into the swing of things despite my little break to go up to Sacramento. I tried to look up some agents who are known for dealing specifically with collections of short stories for the purpose of sending out query letters for my “A Slice of Life Death” and found that there really isn’t anyone like that out there, the collections that generally get published are by authors who have already been established in the writing world,… Continue

Oscar Wilde

I love Oscar Wilde’s work, he is a great writer: stage scripts, novels, short stories, poems, all of it fabulous. I eat it all up. He has a humor that is absolutely timeless and keeps the intellectually challenged in the dark, for it is not for them to enjoy the genius of Wilde. The wiser you are the more twists and turns there are in his writing. “The Portrait of Dorian Grey” will always intrigue me with the heartlessness of Dorian Grey, and his eternal beauty. “The Canterville Ghost” will… Continue
