Something I started a while back. Maybe it will evolve.

Doppelgangers. Similar, yet not the same. Spread amongst the universe are beings that are very alike, but are in no way related to one another. Such a pair can be comparable physically, mentally, or a combination thereof. Welcome to the world of Twinisms.

It was nearly time for the much anticipated solar eclipse to occur and the masses were out to enjoy the phenomenon. In a matter of moments the moon was sauntering across the sky to obscure the Sun. The midday sky darkened as black as the midnight sky, just as if Mother Earth had turned out the lights prematurely. A brilliant ring appeared around the moon. The radiating sun was breathtaking, a nightlight to rival them all.

Folktale and lore surround the Total Eclipse. One is never supposed to look directly at the sun. Unable to look away from the sheer brilliance of it all, two people stared on. A momentary lurch forward seemed to come over the two, whose eyes were glued to the sun. A seismic shift could be felt. Both parties dropped to the ground, and did not regain consciousness for quite some time.

“A” came to in a hospital room. She desperately tried to remember what she was doing before she ended up in the hospital. She could only remember a luminous light, and waking up dressed in a tacky hospital gown. The images were blurry at first, her sleep-laden eyes lazily adjusting to her surroundings. When she was fully aware of her surroundings, a sudden chill went down her spine and left her tingling. She didn’t know a single person in this room. They looked like they knew her, though. She suddenly felt alone, more alone than she had in her entire life.


“B” groggily tried to take in details of the room around her. How did she end up in what she assumed was a hospital room? No one was there to greet her. Where was her family? They had all been right with her when they were observing the eclipse. The Eclipse. The last thing B could recall was staring, enthralled at the sun. Now she was in a cold, spotless hospital room without a soul she knew. She shivered…realizing how very alone she was. More alone than she had ever been in her entire life.

Someone Set The Sky On Fire

I was on my way to see my Aunt before she had to have her heart shocked, and we stopped at a rest area. The sunset was breathtaking so I fervently wrote something down, and this is what it came to be.

Someone Set The Sky on Fire

I was at the end of the road

Ready to throw it all away

And then...

Someone set the sky on fire

And it took my breath away

Bleeding colours of the sunset

Washed away all regrets

The sky seemed alive

Nowhere to hide

Someone set the sky on fire

And it took my breath away

It ignited something in me

And now I want to stay

To see the sky aflame once more

Death is no longer at my door

Someone set the sky on fire

I'll live to see another day


I've decided to finally follow up and be faithful to a blog.

I am interested in networking with fellow authors and readers alike.

I only have the opportunity to get on the internet about two days a week, so there will be days without any blog action and then a day or two full of blogging.

Right now I am focusing on exposing the YA fantasy series I am working on. I am about half-way through the first book and this is really my brain child. Though if anyone has any interest in my self-published kindle book I will be throwing links out for it every once in a while.

Stay tuned for the whirlwind of posts today followed by about five days of inactivity.
