“Evie O’Neill has been exiled from her boring old hometown and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City—and she is pos-i-tute-ly ecstatic. It’s 1926, and New York is filled with speakeasies, Ziegfeld girls, and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is that she has to live with her uncle Will and his unhealthy obsession with the occult.

Evie worries he’ll discover her darkest secret: a supernatural power that has only brought her trouble so far. But when the police find a murdered girl branded with a cryptic symbol and Will is called to the scene, Evie realizes her gift could help catch a serial killer.

As Evie jumps headlong into a dance with a murderer, other stories unfold in the city that never sleeps. A young man named Memphis is caught between two worlds. A chorus girl named Theta is running from her past. A student named Jericho hides a shocking secret. And unknown to all, something dark and evil has awakened. ”

25 Things I Learned From Playing Video Games

Paper Bindings | 25 Things I Learned From Playing Video Games
Who says video games cannot teach us anything?   Not me.   

I have been an avid gamer since my Super Mario days.  Oh, how they have changed throughout the years.  But the many lessons they taught me will forever stick with me.

In case you care, I love my PS3, but I'm a X-Box girl to the core.  

  1. No matter how many times I yell at them, my sims will never use the toilet when they need to go.  Oh no!  It is much more satisfying to to pee on yourself, complain, and jump into the tub.
  2. Never use a vehicle's turbo blast too close to the edge.  It always ends badly.
  3. Zombies have no brains, yet they can wield a chainsaw better than me.
  4. I can defy gravity in a Mako and climb up steep cliffs.
  5. A heavy suit of armor only weighs about 30 pounds.  And I can carry several sets, before I get overburdened.

Paper Bindings | Blogging First Steps

Today I take that first baby step into the big, scary world.  I am ready for my grand adventure.  Pen in hand and a camera at my side, I set off to leave my mark.

I am an aspiring writer with a secret wish of being published and successful.  I love the world of my dreams and hope to bring some of my characters to life.  If at the end of this road I find myself where I started, than at least I will have tried.  I am currently working on my first novel.  Even if no one but me and my writers group read it, I will be proud to finish it.  All my life I have been told I cannot do things, I will prove them wrong.  I can do this.  My imagination was a gift given to me at birth.  I have few artistic skills to speak of, so perhaps writing is the path i am meant to take.
