Trying a fake biography this time with the Animas stories, concerning a certain politician that's cropped up a lot in the previous ones. (Can you guess which historical politician she's based on?

This one was inspired by my current read-throughs of Gone With the Wind and Wuthering Heights and feeling really … Continue reading (Animas) Concerning Sal
The second installment in my 'Tales of Old Andong' series, the first of which can be found here. They can be read independent of each other, though. Again, this is a mish-mash of events that happened to myself and others. Indis is a real bar and Hoya is a real bartender. He is good. It … Continue reading Tales of Old Andong: First Impressions
