House of Brittle Bones is a collection of stories which all have an unexpected twist at the end of each. If you like shows like Twilight Zone, you will love these beautifully crafted tales. The house is the book, and the bones (stories) are my very DNA. The stories are brittle because nothing is ever as you expect it to be or turn out. A story will crumble before your very eyes, thus revealing an entirely different dimension.

Growing up, I had a thing for pulling tricks on people just to change their mental elements of norm in their thought patterns. I loved watching The Twilight Zone and scary movies, not knowing that it would format my story telling style.

I started this book in the mid-90's. I took a break from writing the book upon discovering my unique poetry style of metaphoric expressions. In 2014, I enrolled in Hudson Link/Mercy College. The wonderful teachers and staff there opened the floodgates to my pineal glands and all sorts of art started creating itself upon paper. This resulted to ten finished manuscripts and the finalization of "The House of Brittle Bones." Education is power!
