Let Me Entertain You

It took me a while to discover my true self because I was always comparing myself to my father or my sister. It was my sister who diagnosed my shadow syndrome and helped me to discover my own true light. My father was a great magician and entertainer. I don’t

Creating Little Creatures

When I was ten, my sister and I discovered an incredible Magic. The Magic came with no instructions on how it was to be used. The only caveat was that if we accepted its contract we couldn’t stop creating—ever. Now, most would have balked at the lack of loopholes, but

Both and Neither

I’ve written before about how we’re all born into other peoples’ stories. My own story is more complicated than most. Some of this complexity comes from the fact that my birth family chose to live a fiction for most of my life growing up in Cratersville. By the time I

The Magic

At first, when my sister, Poppy, and I discovered the Magic that allowed us to create little creatures, we weren’t really sure what we had gotten ourselves into or, for that matter, what exactly the Magic that we had invited into our lives was. Eventually though, as our number of

Holidays of Cratersville

The last Jolly Zings of the season are flittering about my head. They’re dropping their remaining bits of glitter and tinsel upon me as I’m writing these words. Once their magic reservoirs are empty they’ll be gone. The Jolly Zings appear along with the rest of their festive compatriots on
