Kali Mailhot: Mind Games

Kali takes a unique approach to her writing. She comes from a perspective that is individualistic but has depth and soul. Kali's works can be contemplative but also humorous and just plain different. "Mind Games" is a creatively written mind blowing poem. This is a must read.

Savanna Jax: Today in the O.R.

For Savanna living life brings her inspiration to life. The stories "find her" in her day to day life. She has a unique and witty way of putting her words together so that they take you to one emotional plateau only to twist and turn those emotions to end up on an entirely different plateau. This takes talent and Savanna accomplishes it with ease. Much drama is experienced while reading "Today in the O.R." but in the end, it is encouraging and uplifting.

Rick Henry Christopher: The Mystery Box Foundation

I know I am doing the taboo... Self-Promoting... but... but... what can I say my reads have been down lately and maybe just maybe you might enjoy reading this story. I am especially proud of "The Mystery Box Foundation: The 27 Club" it is rather unusual story!!! I'm not quite sure how this one came to me but once I started writing it, it pretty much wrote itself. My best stories are the ones that seem to take over and write themselves. I am just the vessel who types on the keyboard. Anyhow, I hope you enjoy it.
