Bringing SEEDS to the Silver Screen: Part One

In December of 2015, I was being terribly impolite by checking my phone at Christmas dinner with my family. I glanced through my emails to find an unexpected missive from a man named Josh Tickell.

Book Review: “The Awakening of David Rose” by Daryl Rothman

In 2013, I met a friend. His name was Daryl. We met at a writing conference, and he told me he was (unsurprisingly) writing a book. Several, actually.

Porous, Chapter Seven: You Are The Fisherman

“No,” I say. “I don’t want to.” “Because you’re afraid,” he responds. “It’s okay. I am too. I don’t like it there any more than you do.” “They don’t hurt you like they do me.” “But why do they hurt you, Noomi?” I pause and think about that for a moment. “In a dream they…
