“SLAYING THE DRAGON”/Drag On Dragon (still in draft)

“It Is Written” (still in draft form)

Sometimes we just gotta write. Many times it may just be a seed thought or idea. I don’t consider myself a great writer but I do have concepts that may inspire people with the gift to take things further.

In honor and in memory of My son Alexx (a.k.a. Pressing Words) I started pulling together what I could to put online for others to see, unfinished or not. The week of his death he asked me to do this and encouraged me to get what I have typed out and finalized online as well. This will take time.

We were also looking for a publishing company and there was an illustrator that was working with Alexx to finalize Alexx’s last project. Go to: to read Alexx’s book published online. “Psyper

I also hope my daughters Kyri, Olivia, Madi and Abbey (his sisters) will not only enjoy writing like I do but share it boldly, without fear, hesitations or limitations. Alexx set a great example. Now he rests in peace and we enjoy what he left behind.

“In Due Time” (Another Story Alexx had just begun) 👈that one we were going to write together.
