Mike Romano slipped into the confessional. The screen behind the lattice grill slid open. “Bless me, Father, for I have sinned.”

“For the love of God, Romano, not again.”

“Will you hear my confession, Father?”


“What do you mean?”

“I mean you haven’t sinned. You didn’t sin yesterday or the day before, last week or last month, and you haven’t sinned today.”

“How do you know?

“I’m playing the odds.”

“I need absolution.”

“No, you don’t. You need some fun. Go have a beer, see a movie, take in a comedy show. Do some damn thing that’ll make you laugh.”

“It’s your job. You have to do it.”

“Jesus, Mary, and Joseph! I absolve you from your imaginary sins in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen. Get lost.”

“That’s not right. It’s not the whole thing.”

The priest slammed the sliding screen shut.

History fascinates me, particularly reflecting on how historical events shape who we are. That has a major impact on my blog posts and stories, and it’s a fundamental theme in The Psalter. When I read a novel, I want to be entertained, of course, but I also want to learn something historically, philosophically or be provoked. Umberto Eco’s character opined in The Name of the Rose, “Books are not made to be believed, but to be subjected to inquiry. When we consider a book, we mustn’t ask ourselves what it says but what it means…” That’s what I ask when I finish a book; and when I write, I want it to mean something.

When I was a student in the French countryside, I tasted things I never imagined existed. Everyone has their preferred comfort foods. Mine happen to be a slice of pungent camembert or brie cheese and a nice Bordeaux. As a child of the sixties, I’m partial to Crosby, Stills and Nash, Aretha Franklin, Gram Parsons, Joan Baez, soul music, country rock, progressive bluegrass, folk, Eric Satie and Vivaldi. I love to dance; and salsa, swing, and rock make my toes tap.

I write in the mornings. Inspiration seems to gestate at night, because I generally wake up with a scene in my head that has to be written right away. The scene usually leads to others. With any luck, I have a few or several pages.

I have been writing for a number of years, but I guess as I grew up in a house in a cemetery, I was never going to end up writing romance books. My fiction is firmly of the darker variety, exploring the things that people might rather not face.

Favorite Food: My favourite food is a Balti, followed closely by rice pudding.

Favorite Place to Write: The joy of a laptop means I can write wherever I am and it’s the process of writing I enjoy, so it doesn’t matter where I am.

Favorite Music: When listening to music, I prefer bands such as Korn and Rammstein, but I will listen to anything. When running, I listen to lots of dance music to keep me motivated.

Favorite TV Show: My favourite TV show is probably Dexter.

Ruby watched the south entrance of the Victoria Clave market from the inside of an abandoned arcade until dawn came up on it, and it slouched into life. The Gitjihng moved into place at the market entrance like black burn marks against the corrugated steel walls, and what had been menace had shifted into terror. Their guns flashed with false promises. Their decay had been from the inside out, a profound kind of hypocrisy Ruby was beginning to understand the contours of. The line began for registration, rickshaws and individual vendors, carts filled with handmade goods and things found in the waste. A corpse lay in a pile of garbage at the corner of the market, in front of what had once been a stim pharmacy, and people walked by it, deliberately unseeing. She watched and waited for the Swede, for the Korean girl, but they didn’t come. She would have to go in after them.


Alison is a science fiction/horror writer based currently in Washington DC but with a world traveler spirit earned from being an Army brat. She loves video games and bad 80s horror movies and the Ray Bradbury books her dad had stacked on his shelves when she became a kid. She is also occasionally a Shakespearean actress. Her writing comes from the bizarre highway that is the middle ground between video games and fiction.

Favorite Food: I am addicted to coffee

Favorite Place to Write: I love to write at anywhere that served coffee

Favorite Music: I love jazz and anything with a unique viewpoint.

Favorite TV Show: I never miss an episode of Doctor Who or The Walking Dead, and I was raised on classic Who and Star Trek: The Next Generation.
