R is for Ramora


“Hello, my name is Ramora and I come from the village of Manus Wu. Up until the age of 12 I lived with my family in the village.

I was happy, I guess, but I always wanted more. I would watch the old witch doing magic by the Mirror Pond, dropping her polished pebbles into the water.  One day she gave me one – a small blue polished stone. I still keep it in my pocket although today I live far away from Manus Wu in the Dominion of the Tegs.

Do you want to know how I ended up there? Well, today you can read my story for FREE on Kindle.

Evil Tegs, Puzzling Puzzles, and Assorted April Stuff


Whoa, we’re half way through April already. April’s a busy month for me.

This April I’ve set myself TWO challenges. I’m doing both Camp NaNoWriMo and over on my puzzle blog I’m Blogging from A to Z.  Plus tomorrow I’m going to be on Changes with Sally Ember talking all things bookish and puzzly.

Pleased to report the writing part is going well. So far each day in April I’ve completed my assigned one thousand words. I try to write them in the morning before turning on my internet. That way I don’t get distracted. Here’s a little excerpt from today’s writing. Max is reuniting with a certain evil Teg – we know that’s unlikely to go well.


Anyway Stella knew you’d be hungry. She picked these berries just for you. Don’t they smell scrumptious? They are rich and juicy. Won’t you try one?”

“No, I’m not hungry,” lied Max.

“Stella’s sorry, did she not make it clear? If you want to leave this room and see your darling Celia you must eat. The choice is simple. Eat a berry or stay here in this room until you die.”

“You’re bluffing Stella. Gromer told me. You don’t age in the shadow world, so I would never die.”

“Oh I wouldn’t be so sure of that. Stella and her sister have some interesting ways of disposing of their guests when they are no longer useful. Interesting and painful ways … and entertaining too. It gets so boring down here, nothing like a little bit of torture to relieve the monotony.”

Max gulped.

“So what will it be? Eat a berry … or die? And certainly if you choose the second option I can make your demise particularly interesting and rather painful. Won’t that be fun … for me?”

And finally there’s Changes – watch tomorrow morning when I meet with Sally Ember via Google Hangouts and Youtube. Who knows where the conversation my lead!

Happy April Folks!
