The Dark Alley

Suzana Writes

This is an unusual post, in that it has many authors. Yesterday in a writers’ group I’m in, we had a “Tantalizing Tuesday,” where we posted flash fiction (500 words or fewer) or poetry, using one of a set of photos, or one of four sentences as an inspiration point. Bonita Franks and I, with the authors’ permissions, of course, are posting the resulting fiction or poems to our blogs. Bonita has done half (a link to follow), and this is my half. They were all done using the same photo. Here it is. I’ll add similar images as we go.


Intriguing, isn’t it? Here are the submissions:

Yikes! Somehow I missed grabbing a submission! I’m so sorry! Here it is, in pride of place, to make up for my goof. (Forgive me, Kathy?)

Rainbow Snippets–Dangerous Lessons

Today's snippet is a blast back in time to the first book I published (and the first in The Yakuza and the English Teacher) Dangerous Lessons. It can be a bit cringy looking back at what you've written in the past, not because it isn't any good, but you can see how far your writing... Continue Reading →

Dangerous Questions – Jamie

This takes place after the events of Dangerous Life and is only a little spoiler-ish, but then we all know Romance must have a Happy Ever After so it doesn’t spoil the important parts of the book. Enjoy 🙂 ………………………………… “I want my lawyer.” Jamie slumped back against the chair, arms folded across his chest.... Continue Reading →
