If you're here to read my stories, here are the links to the sections/chapter for both ongoing works. This post is unlocked, but the entries themselves are friends locked, in case I want to publish these some day. If you're not on my friend's list, but want to read the stories, either friend me and let me know, or email me and I'll send you an electronic copy.

Keeper of Secrets (AKA The Liath Story)

Keep in mind that not only does the narrative itself skip around a lot (among other things it switches back and forth between post-Katrina New Orleans and 1st century AD Ireland) but there are also a lot of scenes in between that have not yet been written. So I'm not promising true coherency, but things will probably make the most sense if read in this order.

Liath is pronounced much the same as Leah. It means 'grey' in Irish. I don't know if it's actually ever used as a name in Ireland, but assume for the sake of my story that it is. Any historical inaccuracies in this or any other bit of the story (which I think will end up as a novel if I ever actually finish it) will be covered under the 'no one really knows what Celtic society in ancient Ireland was really like, so I can make up whatever I want' excuse. I'm also claiming artistic license in having my ancient Irish characters using modern Irish words and phrases, since I don't know Proto-Celtic. Actually, I don't know Modern Irish either but I have a dictionary and a grammar book. Anyone who *does* know Irish please let me know if I got something wrong.

Dear Pinny

WARNING -- This is going to be dark, folks. Really really dark. Dark dark dark with a side helping of angst and some unspeakable suffering for dessert. Bad horrible things are going to happen. Bad horrible things are going to happen to children. You are warned. I actually made myself cry while writing some bits last night. Of course, it's me, the lover of all happy endings, so this one will be hopeful, if not happy, toward the end. But we're talking Valley of the Shadow of Death before we get to that point. So don't read if you're not up for that.

This is also a scifi story, in that it takes place in the 24th century when humans have colonised other planets. A brief overview of the state of the universe in "Dear Pinny" is here.

In its final form, this will be structured as a series of letters written by the main character, interspersed with bits of traditional narrative scenes, mostly from the point of view of the people she meets throughout the story. There are, however, bits in between that haven't been written yet.
Letter 1
Captain Emerson
Letter 2
Gladys Emerson
Letter 3
Allison Rodriguez
Letter 4
Carrie Preston
Scene from later in the story. HERE THERE BE SPOILERS!!
