PREVIEW: “BLOOD TIES”

PREVIEW: “BLOOD TIES”

As many of you know, in addition to my professional career as a poetand an author of smut, I also write short fiction under my own name. My first eBook, a story starring my “problem solver” Cat Cruz, is nearing completion, and I thought I’d share with you the preview that will accompany the finished product on Smashwords and Kindle. It’s called “Blood Ties,” and it has action, adventure,…

NEW POETRY: “LET US PITY THE VIRGIN”

A preventable slaughter took place at UC Santa Barbara this week.

The Brain Monkeys, looking around at the current state of affairs, found they were angry, and sent the following poem up the dumbwaiter.

They’re not the only ones who are angry.

But why do so many people ask me if I’m “from Transylvania?”

Psst. Over here. I’ve got a little surprise for you.

Are you sitting down? Are you ready?

Here goes: I’m a transwoman. LIVING AMONG THE UNSUSPECTING HUMANS!

DUN-DA-DUN!

Who wants some delicious SnickClaireDoodles?

On the lunch menu today: Claire’s “FANCY” rice, which includes chicken broth, sliced Crimini mushrooms, diced scallions, lots of black pepper and just a kiss of comino and chile. Oh, and a squirt of lime. Serve with tortillas and ranchero beans while saying, “OM NOM NOM NOM.”
