Lauren Nalls – A Haunting of Words (AHOW) Author Interview

Today’s A Haunting of Words interview is with author Lauren Nalls: “The Rub” is a journey into the hell of the human mind and soul; from the line that splits reality and madness, to the place the rules of the game of life, and death, become blurred. What inspired you to write this story? This story was inspired by one of my current works in progress, I was thinking about what happened “after” and this was the result. I also pushed myself to see if I could write outside my usual genres. How long have you been writing? I’ve been […]

Fjorgyn Book 2 Progress update and preview

  While I had initially planned on knocking out my first draft of Fjorgyn: The Deep Below in May, personal issues got the best of me.  From a gut-wrenching funeral of my beloved aunt and godmother to a deluge of work-related activities, I am about 20,000 words behind schedule.  This should not, however, impact my ability to hit my target release of mid-July. To those of you who are eagerly awaiting the release of book two, I thank you for your patience and hope I will not disappoint. Book Two will be near twice the length of book one and […]

When Mountains Weep. This is a third person, past tense story about Adam, a young […]

“The Jonathan of Bracken Manor”

My husband surprised me this last Valentine’s Day with a fancy dinner at Vanderbilt Grace.  It was a cold and icy day when we arrived, looking like it was going to rain.  This did not detract from the evening.  We sat at a private table near a roaring fire, a live pianist serenading all of the diners. The dining room was dimly lit and romantic—the perfect setting for a perfect Valentine’s Day. We got to talking over dinner about things we were working on, upcoming trips we had planned, and general odds and ends.  I took a break from the […]
