I believe we all have ghosts that haunt us and monsters inside of us. Ghosts are more than haunts, and the stories about them can be more about the fears in life than in death. The wolf is untamed aggression, vampires seek immortality at the expense of others, and Frankenstein's monster is really about the monsters we are, not in the creations we project on others. Here, you will find short stories, illustrations, and a novel in progress that question reality and the nature of monsters and ghosts that haunt us.
In some ways, I am afraid to share these pictures and stories. Many people don't believe in ghosts, and some people might even think I'm crazy. I hate to admit this, but I have wondered about it too. Sometimes I wonder if what I see aren't necessarily ghosts, but what most people choose to ignore.

It's not easy to share something this intimate, but I'm tired of being alone in what I see and experience. There are more stories to share than just my own.
I am an artist, and I see ghosts, and since you can’t take pictures of ghosts, I draw them.
I had a nightmare I was trapped into another world. I wasn’t myself, but I couldn’t shake off the feeling either. The girl looked familiar. She looked like the coffee shop girl from one of my earliest post. Why do I keep seeing her? I decided to capture my nightmare in a comic. It isn’t …
I’m sorry it’s been a while since I posted. There were a lot of things that happened over the last month, and I needed to take care of myself and hide for a while. The end of summer was not fun and games. It was full of daycare work, loss, and stalkers that I’m trying …
We do a lot of events at parks with my dad’s extended family. His sister has four kids younger than me, so we are always going to the park for birthdays and family get-togethers. It was for my cousin Billy’s birthday that we had gone to an old park in Albuquerque that is by a …
