rosaliekempthorne's picture

I write these days a cacophony of genres: fantasy, sci-fi, mainstream, literary, some poetry every now and then. Novels, short stories, novellas, and whatever might fall in-between. I joined ABC Tales in May of 2014, and appreciate the forum it gives me to write and experiment, and even to include my strange little illustrations next to my work. 

You won't see a lot of my stories published anywhere else just yet, but please check out a few of these sites:

Tao

Fur mottled slate grey and ochre; asleep in sunlight, blends in with the rug.

Love (2)

Love unwisely spent; a lesson learned, brittle truths; but loves grows back again.

Love

Love unwisely spent, too late to call it back now. Less remains to share.

Children

It takes a village; but a child will not be taught, would run free instead.
