Blessed Rain…


It’s raining, it’s raining! July has been dry and hot here at my home. The plants droop and I fill my water basin every day for the birds and dragon flies that are finding my flowers. It’s raining!

All my carefully laid plans – hiking and gardening, picking raspberries and visiting, are set aside. I have my excuse to stay inside, writing, playing with mead and staying in pajamas until noon.

But first, let me release this next chapter. I know it’s a slow start, but please indulge me a bit longer. These people have changed since we’ve last seen them, and I want what comes to be understood.

My thanks to Ms Buffy. I’ve worked your editing skills quite a bit lately, and I am grateful for your time.

My best to everyone. If you’re looking for me today, I’ll be inside, drinking coffee and writing about vampires.

And the Story Continues…..



Hello my Friends!!!

Yes, I promised we would be starting the next episode of the FATE SERIES (An Elegant Death Sequel) and here it is!!!!

Until My Final Death

Chapter 1 of Until My Final Death is now up and ready for your reading pleasure.

Now, a little side note.

First off, I had a very lovely woman PM me recently letting me know about all the mistakes I made within the timeline in AED.  Though, I’m very thankful to her for writing to me, I decided that one re-write (currently Fashion Obsession) was enough and to just move forward with the next book in the series.  An Elegant Death  was one of my first stories and I know there were a lot of mistakes in it.  For those of you who are going back to re-read it, or are reading it for the first time, I am very sorry.

Secondly, many of you…

It’s Vineyard Season…


I moved to Connecticut many years ago, half a lifetime. It seemed a place of lost identity, and for me, that suited my wish for exile and hiding. I found work and eventually romance of a kind. I settled here, anxious to give my sons the kind of stable home I never knew, but always I felt this place was missing what I’d found in other places – an identify of its own.

Connecticut is a crisscross of highways, train tracks, and anemic cities, all aimed at giving people a way to go to other places. It sits almost equidistant between New York and Boston. It offers a straight shot to Vermont and, to a lesser extent, New Hampshire. People here traditionally talk of traveling to find their weekend. It’s been rare to hear people discuss this state as a place they purposely chose for enjoyment. Until now.

Annnndddd….. they finally meet!!!


Next chapter of Fashion Obsession up and ready for you.

Yup – a lot of you said you couldn’t wait until Eric and Sookie finally meet.  Well, here they are (big smile on my face).  Fashion Obsession – Chapter 5.

If you were familiar with the original story that I wrote, you will notice that this is where things start to change more than the first 4 chapters (which was a lot of fleshing out additions more than anything).  Oh and the Ick factor on Bill just ticked up another notch – there’s your warning.

Thank you Sephrenia and Kleanhouse for your help on this.  You ladies are Goddesses!  Sephrenia – your banners are AWESOME.

Now, I’m also going to be moving An Elegant Death out of Completed and putting it under it’s own Series Entitled:  FATE.  Why?  well I just started writing the next adventure for our Fav. Viking…

Litha 2018

Brookie Twiling's Books

Heart pounding in her chest, anxiety filling her thoughts. The fustrated androgynous woman sat in her living room, NCIS playing on the TV, a laptop on her curled up lap as she let go of that annyoing thing named ‘fear’ and posted her first writing challenge…

Heyo all! Brookie here, been awhile- right? Just wanted to share with you my very first writing challenge, which is elemental-inspired and I am realising, on this annoyingly sunny Litha day. (I don’t care if it’s the Summer Solstice, Sol- you are annoying… and way. To. Freaking. Hot!)

Btw, if you haven’t figured it out, Litha is the Pagan/Wicca name for the Summer Solstice… at least I think it’s only them, eh, I’m still learning.

Anywho- click on the banner to get to the Elemental Writing Challenge page, I really hope you join in! I can’t wait to read your writing.Elemental Writing Challange Banner2
