Olivia's Filed

The Olivia’s Realm podcast is a serial drama told by Olivia as she tries to escape small town life while discovering there might be more to her little street than she’d ever imagined.

Olivia’s drawn to the field in a way she’s never wanted anything before. And what’s more? The field wants her, too. What will it do to her? Will the Field let her go?

Trojan Wars

Muk would work farmlettes, fix air systems, administer last rights, whatever people need. Helping was her calling and she had trained four years to do it. Unfortunately, her grandfather promised to marry Muk off to seal a deal. After all, she was the closest thing the Belt had to a princess. Isn’t that what princesses really do?

We the people

Sunday knows the way to water. My son needs a drink bad. We’ll follow her and live. The Old Soldier can keep us safe the whole way if we stay with him.

We have to make it, no matter what. Trust Sunday. Trust the Old Soldier.

Calluses: Horses & Keyboards, a mixed metaphor

I have calluses. We all do. Some on the feet or elbows, maybe on your hands if you’re the outdoorsy type. I’m not the out-of-the-house sort by nature, but I’ve worked in barns for years and earned some calluses. I work in t-shirts when it’s technically freezing...

We're all singing the song of doing these days. We have things we'll do better, stop doing, things we do that we'll improve upon. We've cleaned out houses and minds and are ready for the days ahead. Fresh attitude. Fresh outlook. Fresh To Do list. I have a...
