Flash Fiction | The Honey Bees of Orun – An African-American Yoruba Story

Not too long ago in the United States of America, golden sweet honey became a luxury crop and very expensive for people to buy. Nobody wanted to be a honeybee keeper, and due to lack of interest in the work and inability to genetically modify the food, honey was scarce.

Every Word Connoisseur Loves a Great Free Read!

Hello! What are you doing this weekend?

Writers write. Readers read. For both it is a great creative outlet and release that serves to fill the world with adventure, color and wonder. You know I’m a writer because you read my blog.

In addition to writing on WordPress and Amazon, I am exploring possibilities with more new series on the #Wattpad platform. I’d LOVE to get your feedback and hear your thoughts about what you think of them and want to read, specifically in the dark fantasy, sci fi and paranormal genres.

I invite you to follow me on #Wattpad where I am currently developing a story, Drakondia and the Amethyst Ankh which is a sequel to Purple Eyes on Amazon. The story of Drakondia is set in a fictional country southeast of modern day Romania. When a precious treasure is stolen from Drakondia, an ancient evil is unleashed amongst the citizens that only the ankh has the power to control. Join me as I craft this story from start to finish!

Also, I have a pretty radical short story, Testosterless. When a combination of world events wipes out over two thirds of all males on the planet, the ensuing peace results in legislation, from a court of women only, to get rid of the rest. This one is NOT for the faint of heart.

Happy Reading!


Kindle Vella Series Excerpt: Krakenta’s Chaos Spell

Following is an excerpt to be released on December 19th on Amazon Kindle Vella Series Sagittarius Sun: Rejected Mate Shifter Series by Renee Tarot. Read and follow the series and share the link!

Krakenta pulled a thick woolen shawl closely around herself as protection from the cold winds blowing through trees in the forest. She carried a bag of tools and supplies over her left shoulder while her familiar and friend, Eyeball the Komodo dragon, rode atop her right.

“It is as cold as the belly of Hades out here tonight, but silent, as we need it to be,” Krakenta whispered to Eyeball as she, finally satisfied with a quiet opening at the base of a hill, placed her bag on the cold earthen floor.

Eyeball jumped to the ground with a thud, seemingly in agreement with the spot, while Krakenta worked quickly to secure it in a circle of sea salt she poured from a corked glass bottle. Round and round she walked chanting quietly while working, until she was content with the thickness of the circle.

When Dragons Were Men – The First Seven

In the Beginning, in a Time Before Kings and Kingdoms…

When Earth, also known as Mayah, was manifested under the Laws of The All Existent Beingness called DA’O, Mayah cloaked her majestic form in primordial dark waters, which she used to hide, protect and nourish herself. Soon she and her Creator/Partner DA’O conceived within the depths underneath the waters.

Fiery hearths of twin lives burned within her in the caverns of preformed volcanoes and these living fires took form as Fire Creatures whose hair was strongly textured tendrils, as their Father’s, and whose armored skin was the color of toasted flames. These were giants, born two, manifested as twin flames within the caverns of their mother, born in and of herself by the DA’O, formed within the pre-volcanic lavic caves of brimstone, ash and water. Mayah named the male twin Drayghan and his sister she called Mayghan, the first of the Dragonoids.

Welcome to Lagerhaven

This is a story about love, war, demons and witches. It is akin to the ever-evolving story of mankind, its myths and legends. There is nothing new under the sun, and evolution has brought the world back to a place seen before in human history. In the year 2300 CE, mankind has destroyed itself again as in the days of Atlantis.

Years before, humans had created a beautiful, technologically savvy world, but war, famine, greed, bioengineering errors and chaos threatened to take them back to square one, however this time they were able to salvage some things.
