Echoes of a Rifle: The Winchester Mystery House

Posted on April 26, 2021 at 4:00 PM Comments comments (0)

When it comes to being haunted there are no places perhaps more haunted than the Winchester Mystery House. Located in San Jose, California, the giant Victorian mansion once was home to Sarah Winchester, widow of the maker of the Winchester rifle. Aside from now being a historical landmark, the place is known for its size, strange architecture, and strong paranormal activity. The most perplexing feature about the place is its known construction that went on every...

A Look Into Victorian Spiritualism

Posted on April 26, 2021 at 3:55 PM Comments comments (0)

It’s not just playing with a Ouija board and tapping on the wall three times. Spiritualism is the belief the dead can communicate with the living. It has been a wide belief and practice throughout America and Europe since the 1800s. A few well-respected people began the practice with their own early methods. Many Victorians during the 1800s began abandoning their religions in favor of spiritualism despite the vague connection between the two. Victorians we...

Poetry 101: The Basics

Posted on April 19, 2021 at 5:15 PM Comments comments (0)

Poetry is not basic and if you think it is then chances are it's just not your thing or you haven't really given it a shot. However, I'm not talking about poetry being or feeling basic I'm talking about the basics of it, the fundamentals if you will. How do you write a poem and what makes a good poem? Well, I'm not an English teacher nor am I a 100-year-old poet but what I am is an experienced writer and poet who knows the basics of how to construct a poem. I also know what goe...

Poetry 101: What to Write About

Posted on April 19, 2021 at 4:40 PM Comments comments (0)

Poetry is an art. Poetry is a way of expression. Poetry is a way of life. Poetry is many things but while some people find no problem in writing it some have trouble coming up with what to write about. This may not make sense to some because they believe that poetry comes from within you and you write from the heart which is true but not all poetry comes from the heart or brain. Poetry and inspiration for it can come from literally anywhere. If your writing about emotion then w...

The Wax Factory Workshop: An Introduction to Wax

What is The Wax Factory?


The Wax Factory is more than just my sixth published novel it's my first true book series and an idea that came to me spontaneously out of nowhere. One day I was in the car in the back seat and looked out the window to see a factory that I had seen countless times. I had always wanted to use the name of the factory, The Foundry for something but it just never came to be. My brain work...

The Haunted History of Demonic Possession

Posted on January 24, 2020 at 6:50 PM Comments comments (2)

When we think of possession we naturally tend to think of the horror movie The Exorcist. A movie about a young girl who becomes possessed by a demonic spirit and the church is brought in to perform an exorcism on her to get rid of the malevolent being. This while dramatically fictitious is an example of demonic possession. Demonic possession is defined as the belief that a person's actions are controlled by an alien spirit, demon, or entity. It also happens to b...

Ghost Stories. Chances are we’ve all heard some over a campfire, or have read them at some point. Ghost stories are meant to scare us, to give us chills and to make us look over our shoulders. Some stories are urban legends, told for years and passed down without any true knowledge of whether or not it’s true. Other stories are the ones that will be listed here, the best of the best. These are some of the best ghost story books of all time and how th...

Thankful for Tradition(A Thanksgiving Story)

Posted on November 27, 2019 at 5:40 PM Comments comments (2)

Thanksgiving has come once again and no one appreciates it more than the Morton family…well, the adult Morton’s that is. Every year Dave and Sherrie Morton hold a big thanksgiving dinner for their entire family and every year their two kids, Eric and Samantha could care less. It’s not that they don’t like Thanksgiving it’s just they don’t get why everyone gets together to stuff themselves silly with food they only eat once a year and t...
