Serial Dreams

So, I had an informal poll on my facebook page: What would my Curious Fictions subscribers like for their exclusive subscriber-only content? I offered to post unpublished flash fiction, works in progress, or a serialized novel. Serialized Novel won out BIG TIME. This leaves me, however, with the question of what novel to write and […]

The Repose of the Righteous Man

I had the day off yesterday and since I saw Captain America: Winter Soldier recently, I decided to spend the day looking for Nick Fury’s grave. See, the movie was filmed in Cleveland, and I knew that some scenes were shot not far from Lakeview Cemetery so it made sense that the scene was filmed […]
