Now You See Me, Now You Don’t

“People stare at the floor. Even to look at a homeless person is to sign a contract with them. I dabbled with joining the Samaritans once. The supervisor had been homeless for three years. I remember him saying that the worst thing was the invisibility. That and not being able to go anywhere where nobody … Continue reading

Blackened Lights Please…Draw Curtains

“Alliances with the devil often manifest themselves in virtuosic mastery of an instrument.” An angelic young girl with winning good looks and a extraordinary talent for tickling the ivories; physically has all the potential a parent could want for in a prodigy in the making. Couple that with a fearlessness, curiosity, and a thirst for … Continue reading

Tick Tick Tick BOOOOOM

“Without thinking further, Diaz lifted his left leg and scrambled over the jersey wall. There were only a couple of feet between the curved concrete of the wall and the solid white line of the shoulder. He hewed to the wet, narrow space, absorbed the rush of air from passing cars time and again, ignored … Continue reading

A Susceptible Mind

The key ingredient was to find a person of faultless poise. A person willing to see both sides of the argument, but also the ability to find an equilibrium permitting the completion of the task at hand. With two forces tugging at both ends, which way would he turn when the time came? The end … Continue reading

Evil: Taking The Easy Way Out

” ‘I will sweep away everything in all your land,’ says the Lord. ‘I will sweep away both people and animals alike, even the birds of the air and the fish in the sea will die.

I May Be Cynical But I Refuse To Be Blind

“In my life everything was temporary. Love came the least, pain came the most and happiness sometimes didn’t come at all. Rage was my only unconditional friend. It moved with me, and slept with me; everywhere I went it was their walking with me as if it did not want to let go of the … Continue reading

A Novel Approach

“Without an author, a novel wouldn’t be written, but without a reader, a novel would have no effect. Without readers, novels can’t be. We don’t only read novels – we create them. A novel makes us laugh or cry, it gives us good or bad ideas and it enriches or impoverishes us. Characters, just as … Continue reading

It’s Written All Over Your Face, Your Crossed Arms, Tapping Foot, That Throbbing Vein In Your Neck…

“Your emotions are powerful weapons, and continuing to think that their effects are instant and minimal will only do you a disservice.” Between the frown lines on my forehead, the laugh lines around my mouth and the smattering of silver hairs on my temples, one would be correct in concluding that I am or I have … Continue reading

SUMMARY  Collard County is a collection of 5 short stories by Tamara J. Madison. With bold characters set in rich southern tradition and lushly poetic description, each of the tales carries its own unique twist, flirting with the paranormal and metaphysical. Subject matter includes a woman who discovers that she is literally falling apart and … Continue reading

Just Walk Away, Turn Off The Device And Everything Will Be Okay

SUMMARY Like sharks safe in the dark fathoms of the sea to prey on targets, the Bullies’ Predatory Footprint looks at the vast, opportunistic, cruel, and predatory behaviour of bullying that is exercised to repress and maintain an ascendancy of dominance, power, and control over others. Harrying many young and vulnerable people to suicide, the … Continue reading
