The Old Woman on the Street



The Old Woman on the Street


I sat at a table on the restaurant's patio sipping my mocha, pen in hand observing the rushing crowd when I saw her. How could I not? For she was the only one not in a hurry to be somewhere but was dawdling in each moment of time. 

The old woman was an odd looking sort with her holey tennis shoes, mismatched socks, and long flowery skirt which was worn thin and didn’t match the bright pink sleeveless blouse. Her exposed skin was dark and layers of fat rolled about her thick waist and her flabby upper arms jiggled when moved. But it was her face that held my attention with its leathery wrinkles, chapped lips, toothless grin, and large brown eyes which imparted a sense of grace and seasoned wisdom.

The woman pushed a shopping cart down the sidewalk filled with odds and ends that other people threw away as junk. She ignored the stares and answered sarcastic taunts with a friendly wave while humming Amazing Grace. Shuffling forward, her eyes darted back and forth looking for discarded items and when found, would stoop to pick  it up examining the treasure. When excited she jumped up and down while holding it with both hands and at the same time smacking her gums together in glee before placing it gently into the shopping cart and shuffling on. 

The old woman was in a world of her own where few were invited in. A world I was privileged to step into for only a few moments.

A Chronicle of Chaos (The Light and Shadow Chronicles Book 1)


In the deepest bowels of hell, five demons have been summoned, their bonds to the fires of damnation severed. For the first time in millennia, they have been called to the human realm to put an end to a battle that has raged for centuries. 

The Children of Light and the Brotherhood of Shadow dominate the war-torn land, each yearning to rule the planet. Now the Brotherhood has summoned the demons, a weapon that could destroy their enemies once and for all, if they can only keep them under control. Chaos, a soldier in The Children of Light, basks in the glory of being the highest ranking fighter of his generation, but his arrogance and impulsiveness prevent him from being given the opportunity to prove himself. He believes himself beyond the law, but a fateful coincidence puts him at the mercy of the demon, Anathema. 

The two warriors, demon and human, strike up an intense rivalry, but their obsession to destroy one another only leads them closer together. They must decide which is more important to them – their duty or their desire.
