Specializing in Bewitchment and Single Malt Scotch

I’m not schizophrenic; I’m a writer!!

When I sat down at the keyboard and started writing paranormal romance and mystery stories,  my name was Kay Lawson, but something wasn’t working.  Words weren’t coming, sentences weren’t sentencing, and paragraphs weren’t even paragraphing. At first, I hoped these problems were the result of a little rust on the old writing muscles—just a bit of literary atrophy.  After a month or two of tapping out total and unadulterated tripe, I looked at myself in the mirror and wondered if––and it was a big ‘if’—if maybe I had no talent. Now, I’ve always had an alter ego. She was my…

As I prepare for my tour, I’ve made a list of…

Equinox: Balancing Light and Dark

At 3:44 P.M. CDT on Sept. 22, the earth will stand straight up in relation to the sun. The sun will shine directly down on the equator. Day and Night balance at 12 hours each (or as close as we ever get to it). Light and Dark are perfectly counterbalanced. In the next second, the earth begins the slow tip to the south which ends on December 21. We literally fall into winter to be caught by gravity on the Winter Solstice. I put up Halloween decorations on the equinox, partly because inside I am thirteen years old, and partly…
