    The community of Fairbanks is threatened, and there's only one person who can save them. Unfortunately, the leader of their group just had her hanged.

  • Kill Cycle

  • Madelyn's Mistake


    For so many years, Madelyn had protected her grandmother's cabin for posterity. Her nephew proved that it simply wasn't important. Family was important.

    Down in Fairbanks, it's a fragile time for the small community. Any pressure could fracture the structure they've achieved. A stiff breeze could disrupt the balance of power.

    God help the poor souls who might threaten Madelyn's new family.

  • Madelyn's Nephew


    Gather my bones, if you find them. If a bear hasn't dragged them off, or a wolf cracked them for my marrow. My skull goes on the wall with the others. Any other remains can be planted near Sacrifice Rock. That's where my grandfather is buried, and where I dug up the skull of my beloved grandmother.
    Her sweet eyes were still wise and kind, even when I only imagined them from their hollow sockets. She taught us so many things—how to hunt, trap, and fish. She should have taught me how to live alone. I never learned the trick of scaring away the ghosts. They won't shut up and leave me in peace. Guess I can't beat them. I'll have to join them.

  • The End of Reclusion

    This is it. Tomorrow I will throw open my door and walk out into the real world. My first stop will be to get a haircut. After that, the day is mine. I'm thinking of going to the grocery store so I can pick up some fresh fruit. It's all very exciting! The other day, someone asked me what I've learned from this experience. Not much. I was pretty...

  • Excess

    I have so much food left. I have a ton of frozen vegetables, tons of butter, and I could bathe in seltzer water. I won't make a dent in any of that stuff in the next week. Dog food and horse food are also fully-stocked for the foreseeable future.  Still, I'm going to fly to the grocery store next Tuesday. I'd like to get my hair cut first. I...

  • Twelve

    My countdown continues--twelve days left. I can't think of another time when I went three months without driving or riding in a car. I grew up in the suburbs. I'm sure I went to the grocery store with my mom as an infant. Even our babysitter was a car ride away. I bet I've never, in my entire life, spent three months in an area this small. Weird. I...

  • Three Weeks Left

    Tomorrow is the first day of March. I'll have three weeks left of reclusion. I have super big plans for the 22nd of March. I'm going to the doctor. I'm thinking about seeing "10 Cloverfield Lane" (although I'll probably wait until that Thursday). Actually, I guess that's it. Aside from those small excursions, I don't think my life will change...

  • Crime

    There's so much going on, I don't know where to start!  First, let me thank my friend Dave, who introduced me to a new hobby. I opened a surprise gift a couple of weeks ago and discovered a lockpick set with a transparent lock. through the clear plastic, you can see the tumblers and understand how the lock works. It's really fascinating. With a...

  • Speed Bump

    It might be time to harvest. The lettuce is growing incredibly fast now. I'm not certain how much bigger it's supposed to get. Now that my hydroponic lettuce is in the kitchen, the purple grow lights are visible from the road. I've been waiting for the police to knock on the door, but my only company this week was the guy from the Chinese...

  • Same

    I suppose I'm a little bored. Maybe that's the wrong word. I suppose I'm in a bit of a rut. I've been doing too much of the same thing every day. It's good, don't get me wrong, but sometimes I look at the clock and wonder how much longer I really need to stay up before I can legitimately go to bed. My books are going well, my projects are all...

  • Dreams

    I've been caught in a lot of circular dreams lately. Last night, it was about the characters of the book I'm going to publish in February. The book is called "Post Grace," and it's pretty personal for me. In the dream, I kept going round and round about events that never happened for the people. I kept thinking, "I have to take that part out....

  • Storm

    I spent a lot of the day watching traffic cameras from Virginia, and waiting for the snow to start. It was great fun. I love those "found footage" movies, like Paranormal Activity, where we get to spend long periods of time watching empty rooms. This was like that, but with traffic and no demons. Once the snow started, it got really interesting. I tracked...

  • Release

    I released "Madelyn's Nephew" yesterday. I took a chance sending it out to the mailing list on a Wednesday. I'm not sure that's going to pan out. I usually go for Thursday or Friday. I figured I should vary the day to see if it made a difference. Who knows--maybe some people will check their email in the next couple of days and the percentage...

  • Fire

    My thumbs hurt. I'm not sure why. I was probably careless with my weightlifting. I'll try to stay off of them for a couple of days and see if that helps. My hands and wrists are always right on the hairy edge of an injury. I type a lot--probably more than is healthy. It's such a hard life that I lead. I had a small fire yesterday. Years ago, I...

  • Sprouts

    Everything is going well here. I'm deep into my final draft of "Madelyn's Nephew." I'll release it in about a week. I'm very exicited to introduce Madelyn to you. I think she's tough, smart, and funny, and I really like her. My favorite heroes aren't backed screaming into a corner by a threat--they recognize the threat early and then they prepare...

  • I Won!

    I won the lottery today! No, not the silly Powerball, or whatever everyone has been talking about. I won the Nielsen lottery! I've always wanted to have the Nielsen company contact me about my important opinions about what's good on TV. Today, they did! They sent me $5 and a survey to fill out with the promise of $5 more. They asked me how many...
