VanishedfromDustBannerVanished from Dust - Kindle CC



Eric Stark is not insane. Or at least he doesn’t think so. He wishes everyone in Dust, Texas, felt the same way. But that’s not going to happen since the whole town thinks he’s crazy. Why didn’t he keep his mouth shut?

No one understands. Eric is alone as he battles his sanity in a town of tormenters. Suddenly a new friendship emerges after the new kid, Kyle Barrett, moves to town.
Eric reluctantly reveals his secret. Is it a curse or a gift? He isn’t certain, but with Kyle by his side he finds the courage to seek the truth.

They soon realize that something sinister is descending on the residents of Dust.
Is it caused by Eric’s phantoms or is it something else? Is it connected to the mysterious death of hundreds of townspeople over sixty years ago? One thing is certain—only Eric and Kyle can save them.

They set out on a heart-pounding adventure and find themselves transported to a disturbed and deserted version of their small southern town. They quickly discover that this new world has mysteries of its own to uncover. What they find could prove more than they bargained for, and it only leads to more questions. Eric and Kyle must face a horrifying fact—they may never get out alive.

“We’re gonna die here,” Kyle muttered.

“I don’t believe that,” Eric said. “And neither do you.”

Will they survive their encounter with these dark and mysterious beings?

Will they find a way back home?

Or will they be lost forever?

The Vanished from Dust series is perfect for anyone who craves a hair-raising thriller packed with mystery and suspense. This paranormal story for young adults can be compared to Stand by Me, mixed with Odd Thomas, and a twist of The Dark Tower.

The Story of the Office Fish


Once upon a time, there was the Instigator of all Things Fun.  Her name was Catelyn.


And Catelyn said to the friendly office witch, Mirasol, “We should get office fish.”  And Mirasol agreed.

Catelyn’s fish was named Panchito and Mirasol’s was Humberto.  Both fish were named after characters in a telenovella.


Soon they convinced the Basque intern, Saioa (pronounced Cy-owe-ah) to get her own fish. Saioa adopted Jose’ Carlos.  Unfortunately, she left him in her car overnight, and he died.  The next morning she tried to revive  him in the microwave (seriously), but it was a no go.  And so, a slightly wiser fish parent, she adopted Jose’ Carlos Dos.

Panchito was a sickly fish and just could not hold on.  He was replaced, by the absolutely fabulous Sebastian  Blanco.



Soon, the counter of the coins, Teressa, was feeling left out.  She wanted a fish too, but she did not watch telenovellas.  It was decided that Teressa should adopt a green fish and name it Tinker after her favorite Disney character, Tinkerbell.

But there were no green fish to be found.  So instead, she adopted beautiful Rufio.

RufioShortly, Humberto became ill.  The good witch tried to fix him, but to no avail.  Humberto had always been a badass, and as such, he did not want to die a slow, lingering death.  One day, when Mirasol got to work in the morning, she found that he had committed suicide by jumping out of his bowl.  And so came Ines.

Catelyn, being an excellent Instigator of all Things Fun, decided the fish should be bred. She adopted Paquita Palomita Blanco-Garcia La del Barrio to be a breeder-in-training.

But after some rest and renewal, there was also new hope:
