Hi, how are you?

I write stories, some of them for Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine and Pulphouse Fiction Magazine.

I’ve also written five self-help books applying business techniques to personal matters like getting dressed, cleaning house, and feeding your friends.

This Month’s Free Short Story

This story is free on this website for one month. Not your cup of tea? No worries, I’ll share another story next month.

Take an ordinary moment. Add golden light and dramatic music. Now you’ve got a movie.

Sandra (not Sandy, Sands or Sando) Lockwood works in a basement storage cupboard come office.

Now she has Daniel Carruthers, movie star and Gorgon Studios CEO to deal with.

Is it possible she’s in the right place at the right time for love?

The Day the Schedule Broke by Alexandria Blaelock is free on this website for the month.
