Welcome to my domain...if you dare...

Welcome to my blog about life as a writer and the craziness it involves with struggles of daily life. Make yourself at home but only if you don't mind a little messiness from time to time. This isn't the Home and Garden blog or Martha Stewart so don't expect cute little crafts with homemade goodies. That's not happening in the world of vamps, weres, and other things that go bump in the night...well...maybe homemade blood cakes topped with 'scream a la cream' sweetness along with the sexy alpha males who serve it up.

How about some hot sauce with that ice cream?

So what's up with the strange cravings?  NO!  I'm not pregnant.  However, I do have some strange taste at times when it comes to my food and books.  I like to think that my taste are 'normal' but sometimes really they even freak me out.  So what's wrong with a having a desire to read or write about a schizophrenic vampire who works at a blood bank.  Seems perfectly fine to me.  Especially if you like to throw in a virgin succubus blood donor who has a phobia of sharp objects; such as needles or fangs.  Go figure.  But again it also tickles my fancy when the hero doesn't mind killing a close family member in order to save a zombie stranger who may or may not hold the key to curing an out break of a deadly epidemic.  YUMMY!  Bring out the popcorn and Tabasco sauce for a day of delicious mayhem.  Yep, that's my kind of normal. 

With that being said, I pretty much do not have any discrimination when it comes to reading.  I read about anything...at least once.  I mean how am I going to know if I like it or not if I don't give it a try?  I have the same view on food.  Sometimes the worst looking foods turn out to be the best tasting meals.  Books can be that way as well.  You never know what a delicious treat you'll come across once you try out a new different genre of books.  You may discover that you have an eclectic taste once you open the cover and devour the inside contents. 

Well, with all this talk of food and books, I'm getting hungry for some shrimp nachos with a classic appetizer of Edgar Allan Poe.  So what do you crave?
