Supernatural stories include themes such as vampires, werewolves, witches, myths, paranormal activity and ghosts. Spine-tingling, chilling tales can revolve entirely around mythical characters or depict non-human creatures interacting with mortals in everyday life.


The Darkest Night - Part Six

Not all tales can be found in books, but all myths are born of truth.

“Nooo… what are you doing?” Mary called out, panic gripping her as she watched the scene before her unfold. The woman turned slowly to face her, her expression blank as she observed Mary with curiosity. She raised one hand toward Mary – the one that was not buried in the other girl’s blood-soaked chest – fingers curling slowly shut as she continued to study the girl who had interrupted...Read On

Rise and fall Ch 13

Close your eyes but I won't go away, we're there for you ~avantasia the Haunted

The world was a whir of green and brown as his feet felt like they were flying. Freedom was possible, he just had to make it out of this hell first. His steady breaths were calm as he dashed through the underbrush, ignoring the snags and cuts, calculating the best path for the fewest tripping hazards and less likely to be followed. The man had ran for an hour straight, by now his...Read On


Of Blue Blood and Enchantment

The preppy and the witch.

Bradley Carlisle was a bully, but it wasn’t emotional or physical abuse that had made him this way. To the contrary, he’d been pampered and idolized all his life. After all, he was a  Carlisle . It was said that his ancestors were among the elites of the elite who sailed over on the Mayflower from the old country. Whether this was true, Bradley cared not one whit. He didn’t depend...Read On


Vampire Justice Part 20

Gwen meets some new friends. Connie takes an active part in the case.

Connie listened as Slade spoke to Kevin. She had one more idea that might lead to more evidence against Molly and Carlo and maybe others. She wanted to tell Slade but knew that DD's was not the place to expound on future police strategy. She would wait until they were with Kevin and Eran at the station. Connie had not felt this good about an investigation since before suffering the effects of...Read On


Final Night-Chapter Sixteen-Captive

Morgan came to in in a strange place. She was in an empty room. The carpet beneath her was coarse, obviously cheap and not the cleanest. The walls were freshly painted over, and the scent of it lingered in the small space. The window on the other side of the room was boarded up with what appeared to be cardboard. She was still wearing what she had been when Andre had turned on her. Her...Read On


Final Night-Chapter Fifteen-Taken

"Calm down Morgan." "So it's true then? You're Matthias?" He sighed, and his entire form shimmered like a massive heatwave had come over him. One second she was looking at Julian, and the next she was looking at Matthias. The sight of him made her heart beat faster, and at the same time made it break. She'd punched him in the face the moment he'd walked in the door, so angry was she. The look...Read On


Vampire Justice Chapter 19

Connie gets into the investigation with Slade.

Diana met Raven and Carlo at the door to the pub and let them in locking the door after they entered. She led Raven to the special section where Molly sat eating breakfast. As Raven approached, Molly stopped eating, put down her utensils, looked up and smiled at the lawyer. "Welcome Raven, did you bring my wayward servant with you? I hope that you had no trouble getting him released from the...Read On


Final Night-Chapter Fourteen-Moving on

Julian had a playful side. Somehow, Morgan hadn't really expected that from the powerful executive. He had discovered she was ticklish and had decided to launch an all out attack on her. She was laughing so hard her stomach hurt and she had curled up into a defensive ball. "Mercy!" She was giggling non stop. "Mercy! I surrender!" He laughed and pulled her up into a sitting position. He had...Read On


Final Night-Chapter Thirteen-Julian

One and a Half Years Later "Well, obviously the proposal was well received." "I agree, though I don't think we've totally convinced Laura." Morgan made a face at her co-worker. She and Tanya had been fast friends when she'd been hired at Leiman and Cordell. It was a business that was all about sales and marketing, and so far Morgan had thrived there. "Laura is the troubleshooter. She...Read On


Final Night-Chapter Twelve-Hate you, Love you

"No, that's the Weeping Angel." "The statue with the wings?" "Yes." "I do not understand what is so frightening about it." "They stay totally still until you look away, and then they move a lot closer until they get you. I mean, we all have to blink sometime right? Also, if you look them in the eye, they can get in your head and control you. They are totally creepy. I'd rather deal with...Read On


Rise and Fall Ch 12

This was long overdue...

Dia stirred, opening her eyes to a pale blue sky and branches covered in delicate pink flowers that swayed in the breeze. The air was crisp, clearer, Dia sat up and stared out into the distance where the city stood out like a small blemish for the area surrounding it. She sensed the brooding presence of Grey lying beside her. "I thought I told you no." "I'm not a good listener," he mused,...Read On


Final Night-Chapter Eleven-Normal

Three days passed with her stewing in her own broken heart. She convinced her mother that she had come down with the flu, but really she was just sad. She missed Matthias with everything in her, but at the same time, she was so angry at him that she wasn't entirely sure she wouldn't stab him if she ever saw him again. "Enough." She muttered. She wallowed long enough. It was time to pick up...Read On


Open Your Eyes

Not everything is as it seems

It’s that moment when you know you’re being watched; when an invisible hand reaches into your dreams and drags you back to reality. The shock sends your heart racing, the panic intensifying when inner voices whisper, Don’t make a sound, something’s not right . We’ve all experienced that prickling sensation as the hairs on the back of our neck stand to attention while our ears...Read On


Final Night-Chapter Ten- Escape

"Sometimes your knight in shining armor turns out to be an idiot wrapped in tinfoil."-Unkown She was sore all over when she woke up the next morning, and filthy too. She'd rolled around a little bit in the night, trying to get comfortable. She had been given clean water and food, so it seemed that he planned on keeping her alive. It was only then that she remembered he vowed not to harm...Read On


Final Night-Chapter Nine-From Bad to Worse

"Not even a King can escape the consequences of his actions."-Unknown. Things did not progress. Morgan was sitting on her pride, and she knew it. She knew that Matthias would not be the one to make the first overture. But every time she saw him she just got so angry! All she really wanted to do was give him a good slap across the face. He didn't speak to her, but the way that he looked at...Read On


Final Night-Chapter Eight-The Other Shoe

"Never give people choices you don't want them to make."- Frank Sonnenberg. Andre Andre materialized in his chambers gasping for breath. The wound was healing slowly because the damn mortal damn near scrambled his organs. He made a mental note to find out who taught her to twist a knife so viciously and kill them. He sat quickly on his bed and waited out the healing process, allowing...Read On


A Vampire's Lullaby Chapter 12

The moment before the end.

Chapter 12: Alex’s Final Moments I opened my tired eyes, only to see myself. "You woke up, Alex." I sat up, my thirst for blood beginning to overrun my control. "Who are you?" My look alike helped me to my feet. "Can’t you tell?" I looked at the man once more, the painting of my dad appeared in my mind. "You’re my-!" "Alex. They need your help." He pointed past me into the air. I...Read On


Final Night-Chapter Seven-Violence.

Morgan paced nervously as time wore on. She knew he came back, but he was taking forever in council. She ran her hands through her hair in a frustrated way and then forced herself to sit down at her vanity. She was absolutely exhausted and if she didn't cease pacing she would wear a hole through the rug. She sat straighter, throwing back her shoulders and took several deep breaths from...Read On


Black Chronicles Character Interview Continued

This is the character interview for an upcoming book I'm planning... Feedback welcome...

“Come step into my parlour,”  He says with charmed guile.  “Dude, I’ve been waiting in the Jeep for you, we’re going to be late,” Hyuk says from the doorway. “But I really want to hear the rest of the story,” Jong says. “Can’t we go later?” Hyuk stands in the doorway, his tall frame practically filling it, tapping his foot impatiently. He’s changed out of his...Read On


Final Night Chapter Six-Decided

"We are our choices."-J.P. Sartre The great hall was all awash with noise. It seemed as though chaos had erupted in the small amount of time it took for Morgan to collect herself. She noticed Sebastian running towards the doors that led outside and she quickly caught up to him. "Sebastian!" He looked back curiously and noticed her. Slightly breathless she halted next to him. "What's going on?"...Read On


Black Chronicles Character Interview

This is the character interview for an upcoming book I'm planning... Feedback welcome...

“Come step into my parlour,”  He says with charmed guile.  I shift my weight, the slats of the wooden bench a stark testament to how long I’ve been sitting out here. Am I even in the right place? I check the message on my phone one more time, even though the chances of it reading any different to the other thirty-something times I’d read it were slim to none... ‘Entrance to...Read On


Final Night-Chapter Five-Like a Country Song

Welcome to the bad choices chapter

“Sometimes good people make bad choices. It doesn’t mean they’re bad people. It means they are human.”-Unknown Life went on, and Morgan began to wonder when she was going to go back home. Every time she brought it up Matthias became angry. And he wouldn’t stop looking at her like he wanted to eat her up. She didn’t even want to think about the feelings that he produced in her. Then there...Read On


Final Night-Chapter Four-New Clothes

Is this what you gave me to work with?

“A woman should always dress to be remembered, not simply to be noticed.”- Morgan Steele. The castle was huge. She had spent the better part of her first week here exploring it. There were tapestries and thrush carpets. It was practically medieval, and she was loving it. There were so many different kinds of people too! So many shapes and colors. All of them were...Read On


Final Night-Chapter Three-Just Friends

Just friends?

“Let me break it down to the facts. You will never get a girl like that! You gotta step up to the plate with a bat. That’s all I gotta say about that!”- Danielle Bradbery Morgan She looked around warily as the barista handed her, her normal mocha. She really didn’t want another stalker today. She just got her bedroom back in order and didn’t need any more immortal brawls....Read On


Final Night-Chapter Two-First Encounter

Ripped at every edge but you're a masterpeice

“You’re dripping like a saturated sunrise; you’re spilling like an overflowing sink. You’re ripped at every edge, but you’re a masterpiece, and now you’re tearing through the pages and the ink.” –Halsey. Matthias Matthias growled. Still she had not agreed to come to him. A few letters were exchanged, in which she was pleasant and agreeable. At first, when she sent the letter he assumed...Read On


Final Night-Chapter One-End of the Dream

I found a grave, brushed off the face, felt your light, and I remember why I know this place.

Chapter One- End of the Dream “I found a grave, brushed off the face, felt your light, and I remember why I know this place. I found a bird closing her eyes one last time, and I wonder if she dreamed like me. Well, as much as it hurts ain’t it wonderful to feel? So go on bring your wings. Follow your heart till it bleeds, as we run toward the end of the dream.”-Evanescence. Morgan ...Read On


Dark Rumors - Chapter 2

“So let me get this straight,” sighed the captain. He pinched the bridge of his nose with thick fingers. The nameplate on his desk read ‘James P. Barker’. Detective Bell stood imperiously in front of him, arms crossed, eyebrow arched. I sat in a chair behind the detective holding a cup of sludge the evil front lady from the black lagoon had deceptively (and, no doubt, maliciously) fronted...Read On


The Highly Recommended Witch Doctor

A young man investigates a curse being used to rob him of his youth.

The Highly Recommended Witch Doctor It was ugly, possibly the ugliest tattoo I had ever seen. The colour didn’t do him much justice either. A dark red ink ran across his face. Clearly some kind of animal but one could easily mistake it for a large scar. Maybe he intentionally got himself an ugly tattoo?  It would be befitting of a witch doctor, create an environment that made the visitor...Read On


Dark Rumors - Prologue & Chapter 1

Prologue I stared dolefully down into my near-empty bag of coffee beans. The new order wasn’t supposed to arrive until next week, which meant it was either a great pot of coffee for tonight’s shift followed by almost a week’s worth of government supplied coffee grinds, or five nights of weak, watery, near bland coffee. I sighed. I upended the contents of the bag into the grinder, brought...Read On
