Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you, lads and lassies, and welcome to Ketch Tavern on this fine day! Since one of me characters from Death Island is Irish, I thought I would honor the day with him - Joshua MacAllistar. I loved developing this character. He's a fun-loving man who refuses to grow up and is always … Continue reading Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!

Death Island Bachelors

Happy Valentine’s Day! As a treat I thought I would post Death’s Island’s five most eligible young bachelors that are entangled in Meriden’s life. Yes, I said 'five'! (What? Is Meriden like the only girl on board the Orion? Oh yeah, she is - lucky duck.) Today, I’m just going to give snippets of each … Continue reading Death Island Bachelors

{Updated} Savvy Serpent – Death Island

During my moment of distraught, the serpent’s moon shadow fell over me, the monster’s reflection in the lake drawing nearer in a strike. At which point, I let the serpent’s rage consume me, allowing images to flood my thoughts. Images much like my dreams. I pushed them aside temporarily to let my instincts take over. … Continue reading {Updated} Savvy Serpent – Death Island

{Updated} Loyalties Tested – Death Island

My heart fluttered. Was she ill? I stroked my fingers through her hair to sense if her skin was hot. No fever. I exhaled, feeling calmer by the second. I brought her closer until my lips rested on the top of her head. I didn’t know why or what exactly these feelings were that I … Continue reading {Updated} Loyalties Tested – Death Island

{Updated} Creepy Crawlies – Death Island

The whistle of the wind through the hallway jarred my entire body, and my eyes shot open when something stroked my cheek. It was wet, soft, and a trace, yet it was enough to send my heart into a panic. Unable to see what was touching me—a vine, a spider, a scorpion, a human—I scrambled … Continue reading {Updated} Creepy Crawlies – Death Island

{Updated} The Starting Voyage – Death Island

“A moment of silence for the prayer,” Joshua called out. Everyone’s head lowered—everyone but mine, that is—while Joshua prayed to our Lord, our Father in heaven. As much as I wanted to, I couldn’t bring myself to pray. Not even to pretend. Some reason, the words only made my nerves twinge. I rubbed my thumb … Continue reading {Updated} The Starting Voyage – Death Island

{Updated} Last Flight of the Jolly Roger – Death Island

Lining up, broad side, right before the Viper was a ragged skeleton of an old man-of-war, which drifted gently just beyond the fog and hidden rocks. The entire bow and forecastle were engulfed in towering flames. The torn-up sails stained with ash. At the aft of the ship waved a tattered red flag with a … Continue reading {Updated} Last Flight of the Jolly Roger – Death Island

{Updated} Explosive Escape – Death Island

Please Note: Swear Words Have Been Censored for this Post A full list of curses swirled through my mind. I thought Baker’s men would’ve chased everyone outside and looked for us in the panicked crowd. But one of them must have spied us running up the stairs and into this room. I turned back to … Continue reading {Updated} Explosive Escape – Death Island

{Updated} Mayhem – Death Island

I kneed him between the legs. With a high-pitched groan, the pirate dropped his sword and collapsed to the floor, where I then kicked him in the jaw. He flew backwards, blood trickling from his lip. The pirate whirled his bloodshot eyes on me, raised his legs, and shoved me back into the chairs. My … Continue reading {Updated} Mayhem – Death Island
