My story is “The Catfish Enchantment”, a story featuring Bud Blossom, who turns up on this blog and in my stories like a bad penny, and Alexander “Cosmo” Mitchell, who has also been in several stories. He’s a nice boy with lots of tattoos and piercings. This story tells how the body art got started. To read an excerpt of “The Catfish Enchantment”, click here.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: If you don’t have any tattoos, and you were to get one, what would it be and why? If you have tattoos and they all vanished, would you replace any or all of them or would you start over? Why?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Would it be fair to say you’re obsessed with tattoos, milady?

      Yes. Yes, it would. Not, of course, to the extent of undergoing the pain of actually getting one myself.
