WHEN RACCOONS ATTACK

…I know, I’ve been writing a great deal about animals lately; that’s because there are a lot of them around. Anyway, on a recent evening at around 2 in the morning (I was up working on a project), I heard a giant crash. To my surprise, there were nine—yes, nine—baby raccoons on our back porch (probably because of bird seed, because the only things that go in that trash are used up fireworks, the contents of ashtrays, and wine bottles). By the time I got my camera, there were only about five left, and I just want to note here that, sadly, I missed the moment when Nathan opened the door and one of them tried to get into the house. Sorry it’s a little dark—I didn’t exactly have time to fix the settings on my camera, but still, you can at least get the point…and if this frightens you, consider picking up Apex Publications’ Zombie Feed Volume 1 anthology, which contains Kristin Dearborn’s story “Rabid Raccoons.” You might just learn what it means to really be scared of those furry bandits…

Atari Night

Ahhh…80s night…

I’ll admit I’ve had bad luck choosing social games ever since I started on Facebook back in 2009. Seems like every game I choose folds up after a few months or years—“goes offline”—and then, of course, if you were dumb enough to get suckered into spending real-world money, you don’t get a refund, but your game and your virtual “products” are gone.

The most recent crash and burn is Disney Hidden Worlds by Playdom (Playdom and Playfish are notorious for just shutting down games after taking people’s money). It was during Read the rest of this entry

Missie, Andi, Kristi at The Alamo, San Antonio, TX

Last April, I joined my sister (left) and my niece Andi (center) at The Alamo in San Antonio, TX. I’ve always wanted to go there since my Dad had talked about it so much. It’s as powerful as place to visit as everyone says it is.

As you’re reading this my plane is taking off…I’m headed to Read the rest of this entry

Video: Meet Little Miss Cheese the Chipmunk…

Little Cheese Chipmunk 1

My husband, Nathan, has spent a great deal of time placing bird feeders in our back yard, and now our woods is a veritable menagerie: goldfinches, wrens, morning doves, chickadees, titmice, a couple of different types of woodpeckers, bluejays, brown-headed cowbirds, thrushes, cardinals, sparrows…I simply can’t remember them all.

Seeds attract other animals, too. This year we have been blessed Read the rest of this entry

That’s a big fish…

There are many different species of fish in man-made Candlewood Lake, and I’ve certainly see my share of bluegills, trout, and sunnies; the lake is also home to a few varieties of bass, catfish, and perch as well as bullhead and pickerel.

What I’ve never seen or heard of in four decades of living here is this giant carp; there were several that day, but I was only able to get some video of this one. Check it out.

Time to ESCAPE FROM TOMORROW with the DARK DISCUSSIONS Podcast…

Alternate Escape from Tomorrow poster art

This is an alternate poster for the film. On the DVD, there is a special feature in which you can enjoy a preview of several different versions of posters and taglines.

When Escape from Tomorrow—the surreal film Randy Moore guerilla-style in the Disney Parks—was released last year, everyone wanted to know what I thought (I wrote Skeletons in the Swimmin’ Hole: Tales from Haunted Disney World, a collection of ghost stories set in Disney Parks). Now you can find out Read the rest of this entry

My short story “Shitty Almonds” was accepted to Great Old Ones Publishing’s Bugs anthology due out later this year.

I don’t want to spoil what it’s about—Great Old Ones Publishing anthologies always contain a diverse number of pieces on their given topic, so when it comes out I’d encourage everyone to just pick it up—but I will tell you Read the rest of this entry
