    I have finally read “Jack and the Bad Man” and wow, Annie. Just wow. It was disturbing creepy. Unsettling creepy. Uncanny creepy. I loved it! I like before you even get to the real horror, you have subtle little terrors like “A smile that split his face clean in two” and “…builds up inside you and gets too big for your guts”. Just the lightest touches in the right TONE. That is the most genius aspect of this piece. The narrator tells this tale so perfectly, in the only way that it should be–could be told. And the little moments of internal rhyming make it deceptively innocent. I was already a fan of your poetry, but this is amazing. I’m glad there is finally a link for people to read it now. 😀

    • Oh my gosh, do you know how good it makes me feel to hear this? Especially since it’s been so long since “Jack” was published. You absolutely just made my day. Thank you so much, Ashley!!

      And you might be happy to hear that a podcast of this story will be coming out this October. 🙂

    Wow. I can’t imagine how you manage to do all of these amazing things! I have tried to do a lot of the stuff you’ve done. I made a blog, I’ve written so many stories and poems I can’t even count them, but I have never had success! You are very talented. What are your secrets? You are an amazing writer. I have read through a bit of your work and it was pure brilliance, and I’m sure the works I haven’t gotten to read yet are just as good or better. Thank you for inspiring me!

    • What an incredibly sweet comment. Thank you so much! I wish I could tell you some secrets, but I don’t really have any. I work hard, write a lot, and submit a lot. I’ve also been at this for several years, so the list has had time to grow. Thanks for your kind words, Rachelle. You’ve made me feel wonderful!

    I really enjoy this website! I just read “Something You Don’t Want To Find” and absolutely adored it! I’m a teen author, and you really inspire me. I love your works! Whenever I get writers block for my current story, I like to come here and just read some of your works, and I get some serious inspiration. You are really awesome! 😀

    • Hi Brittany! Thank you so much for stopping by to let me know. I can’t tell you how nice it is to hear this. I’m genuinely touched. I wish you the best of luck with your own writing as well. Have a great week!

        Thanks! You too!
