The words are coming…

And you’d think I could now go and finish Pick  Your Poison but those words are not coming….  And you’d think I would kick my butt and work on some of my original fiction (I have two whole books done – except editing!  LAZY MAGS).  And really, you’d think I would finally take the boxed up Christmas tree from the dining room to the downstairs storage room (go ahead, shake your head…).

But no.  I have another Fanfiction story mulling around in my head.  No promises as I’m not posting a thing until an entire first draft is done.

I must be an idiot…

Anyway – I do have a present for you today (I mean, something other than my rant above).  It’s the end of Blindsided (really, took me what, 20 months to write a final chapter… rolls eyes).

I put a fanfiction Easter Egg in here (it’s the season).  Use comments to tell me if you guessed it or not.  I’ll do a quick blog post to announce what it is (if nobody finds it).

Have a great week!

Blindsided Chapter 6 – Happily Ever After

D’oh! (and a head smack)!

I can’t believe that I forgot to turn on comments for the final chapter of Beauty and the Vampire Beast!

Some of you went to the trouble of going to the announcement post for the chapter to leave comments (and alert me), Thank you!  I woke, excited by the idea of an WordPress in box full of comments, talk about a popped balloon!

It’s been fixed on the chapter page, so if you wanted to leave comments, but my forgetfulness prevented it (and honestly, the stupid WordPress requirement that I have to turn it on) – it’s been fixed now.

Fixed Chapter Post

Mags mumbles as she walks away to get ready for work… stupid WordPress requirement… stupid old forgetful brain…

The End?

Yep, I finally finished Beauty and the Vampire Beast.  Over 1000 pages!  I thank you for your support of this story, your likes and your comments.  I re-read it recently to prepare for the ending – and boy did I find mistakes, so I apologize for those.  I bet this chapter is the same.

Hope you enjoy!


Beauty and the Vampire Beast – The End

What’s next?  I’ve got a draft of the final chapter of Blindsided.  I have a few things to add, then the usual re-read and fretting…  I can’t predict a delivery – but it will be the next thing I post on this site.

Happy Valentine’s Day!


While I’m certain a digital Valentine delivered a day early is enough to make your day, I have something else too.

Are you on the edge of your seat?



I won’t tease you any longer. It’s a story!

So after this, I have the epilogue for Beauty and the Vampire Beast.  It’s 90% written (still tweaking).  I’ve also completed the first draft for the final chapter of Blindsided.  So now, you have an idea of what’s coming.

Here’s today’s stuff:



Mags snickers and walks away from the keyboard…




Happy New Year

I can’t believe it’s been a YEAR since I posted anything (technically, over a year).  It’s been so long, I had to figure out what WordPress again (hopefully I’m doing it right).

I know I have Beauty and the Vampire Beast to finish (one chapter, you’d think I could get that done).  I have also Pick Your Poison hanging unfinished, and Blindsided.  So, what do I have for you today?

A new one-shot.  Really Mags?  Yep, it’s one that popped into my head in December 2016 – and it didn’t get finished until this December?

Yeah, well, it happens.  Life happens.  I did change jobs this year, and it’s been great and humbling to leave an organization after twenty years and start over. I’m on the good side now, so maybe life will settle enough to give me time to write.  Maybe…

Enjoy this following.  The summary doesn’t say much – it’s one you just need to read as a summary would give too much away.

I wish you all a wonderful 2018!

MISSING: Fanfiction Writer


Yeah – I was going to finish this story before the New Year (and I’ll admit it, I meant 2017 as the new year, not 2018.  At this rate, 2018 might be possible!  UGH!

Thank you for your patience.  I have a new chapter for you tonight, and I don’t know where it came from, or why it took so long to get here.  It’s three separate hmm … glimpses into our couple’s life with some actual story line to move us forward.

And, on going missing again?  Yeah – I’m getting surgery next week for my carpal tunnel – so I don’t know when I’ll be back to writing but I will be back at some point.

Enjoy this for now – and wish me a speedy recovery.

Blindsided – Chapter 5

Season of…

Writing?  Actually, yesterday I went out to start store shopping (as opposed to using Amazon Prime for everything), and when I put yet another bag in the trunk, I looked and started singing, “It’s beginning to look at lot like Christmas”. Nobody freak! Of course there are other things that make me think that too – it just caught me when I looked at it.

Well, maybe a little writing.  I do have another chapter for you today – it’s short but it seemed like the right place to end it.

WARNING:  Next week is horrible with activities and such – so you’ll likely get only one more chapter before Christmas, then I’ll finish it up over my Christmas break.

Enjoy the chapter and if Christmas is your thing – have fun getting ready (cause it’s all over too quickly!).  Remember I do my own editing.

Chapter 4 – You’re My Forever
