Dead on the Floor – The Beginning of the End starts here
The beginning of the End starts now. For some of us, Life can be cruel, dealing us a losing hand and for Matthew Radley, a young Wiccan practitioner that is exactly what he got. After a lifetime of chaos, pain and losing himself, he finally got everything he wanted, the woman he loved, the future he desired and a reason to live, but in a single moment he lost it all. Unable to take the pain and no longer desire to live, Matthew takes the one thing he has left, his own life. For Matthew, his story has to end, in order for it to begin, his story has no happy ending, for his is a life of Love, Magick, Corruption & Death and only asks for understanding.

Don't Turn Around
I am Death.
And I am hungry.
And there you are,
Unaware of my arrival.
Don’t turn around.
With Halloween around the corner, this is a short 26 page long story of murder, as you join an un-named killer on his latest spate of killings as he makes his way to his final victim. This is a dark tale featuring a number of curse words, adult natured and sexual references, along with blood and brutality.
Desire is a dangerous thing, it can drive a person to achieve their goals, no matter how far they are. It can drive someone to do what is right, or it can drive a person to kill. To take out a knife, to enter someone's house in the middle of the night, to stand over them and see their life be snuffed out. The Narrator is no exception and a slave to his desire and now you get a front row seat into his world, to see as he sees, to do as he does, to kill as he kills and if you hope to survive - DON'T TURN AROUND!

Little Boy Death - The Life Of
Life is a wondrous journey we all undergo and it can be good or it can be bad. We are forever finding ourselves on moments that will forever shape us. In the form of Poetry this is a story of a life, the Life of Little Boy Death, a troubled soul from day one and now he is ready to share his soul with the world, letting his every fear, insecurity and nightmare be known. It is in the darkness of the soul, true beauty and depth can be found, buried deep within the years of torment, heartache and self-loathing.
