A Cup of Blood (Story Collection)

This collection of stories is one of Donna Washington's new CD's, "A Cup of Blood", which contains scary stories that are creepy enough to make your skin crawl long after they're over.

The Lover’s Promise (Single Story)

My son, Devin, wrote this tale when he was ten. He was born on Halloween night. Currently, he wants to be a videogame designer. I expect that he’ll be able to do anything he puts his mind to. Thank you, Devin, for being your wonderful, frightening self.

The Boo Hag (Single Story)

This is a tale about my favorite witch. A special thanks to Sherry Norfolk for showing me how to do it.

Mr. Fox (Single Story)

Cautionary tales about falling in love with the wrong man have been around for ages. All that glitters is not gold.

A Brewery of Eggshells (Single Story)

This story is dedicated to Trish Tillman, a storyteller from my days at Northwestern University. I store the image of the swollen head looking over the side of the crib from her.
