“Blackmail? He gets you a sweet coffee machine and a research assistant without asking questions? You want it, it appears?”

“Oh. I dunno. Can’t anyone?” Lionel shrugged, confused. To him it seemed normal.

Arista shook her head, dark eyes focused on his. “Uh, no. What planet are you from, Doc?”

“Um—here?” He pointed down at his feet. He smiled self-consciously when he realized the question had been rhetorical.

Where the Winds Blow — Conclusion

Cereal Authors

by Ruth Davis Hays 2016

The end of the year is here, so I will give you an extra treatment:  the last two chapters of this Jorthian short story.  ‘Khiall has been splashed with a cold reality; the fact that Lauralei had a life outside of their love cannot be denied. Will he be able to find her or his own path?

A whisper of snow had veiled the grasslands around the Khnyghtsyde estate by the time ‘Khiall had gathered his wits and returned to the walled kitchen garden. Dark footprints traced his path back to the distant forest where he had sought solitude for the better part of the day. The warning of nightfall had urged him to venture to the house once again, despite the knowledge that his step-father might be home from town.

Dinner preparations were lighting the windows as he approached the weathered back door and…

Character Quotes from Lone Wolf Tales by Dellani Oakes

Cereal Authors

Call Me Penny coverA man stepped out of the shadows, holstering a weapon. “Time to go, little girl,” he said calmly. His face was wickedly handsome, his body lethal. A dark, fathomless eye riveted hers, the other was covered with a black eye patch. As if hypnotized, she was unable to react. Lifting her like a sack of potatoes, he carried her to the unmarked building. A medical team met them at the door.

“Is she injured?”


“You’re sure?”

“Check for yourself,” her abductor replied. “Next time, do your own dirty work. She killed two of my team and incapacitated the rest.”

“Thank you, Staff Sergeant. We’ll see to her now.”

“Make sure she doesn’t remember,” he said softly. “I don’t want her to recognize me when she wakes up.”

“Certainly, sir.”

The Mischief Series – It’s Special

Cereal Authors

Most writers have written a piece at some point in their lives that is special to them; I am no different. My piece has become a series, one that I will probably continue to write until my ideas no longer flow anymore. I always think of this piece as my mother’s book since I originally wrote it for her. Growing up in England, she loved the fairies, collected them and told me fairy stories for years. When diagnosed with a terminal illness, I wrote her a fairy story, Mischief in the Mushroom Patch. She never read the book in print but did read the first seven chapters. I told her the ending before she died. She made me promise to finish it and send it in. I had no idea that story would change my course from writer to author or how many people it would touch.

That book…

Fedelta Parte 25: Regret Me Not

Cereal Authors

Cassie waited impatiently in a corner booth of Carmelita’s restaurant for Stephano.  Tapping her red nails on the table’s black, laminate veneer, she wondered what was the angle?  Either he had talked to his boss, or he didn’t want his wife Destiny, hearing what he had to say.  Perhaps it was a little of both?  Turning her head towards the window she watched people passing by the coffee house, when finally she saw him.  Dressed in a long trench coat, and his face barely peeking out from the black fedora covering his head was Stephano Rimaldi.  Flanked by his two bodyguards he walked into the coffee house and was greeted instantly by a server who took his coat and hat then carefully placed them on the coat rack in the corner, right next to Cassie’s table.  Stephano looked over his should at one of…

Third day of Kha’Nad

Dearest mother Sarrah,

I promised to write to you, and I have been remiss in that duty. Here at the royal house there are many things to keep my attentions, more so than there were at the Conte’s manor. Yet, that is no excuse.

I wish to have a visit when my time for mourning is ended, which unfortunately would mean missing the feast of Gaerm-Yul being shared with you. Rest assured that I will be celebrating it, though. It is one of the high holidays here at the palace! Perhaps I shall come home for the Ennaeg. I would dearly love to sing in the new year with family and old friends. Or, better yet…
