When I’m not Writing or working on the Blog Tour…

 I’m making driftwood art from things found on Ocean Beach near my house.  This one is an exception in that I used some bits and pieces from my step-grandma’s shell collection, which I inherited.  I needed a few eldritch items to make sure Cthulhu had the proper stygian, elder god aura. This was for a friend’s birthday present.  She collects Cthulhu beanie babies.


This is Vino.  Dave wouldn’t let me give it away ’cause he likes the shell on the left side. It’s hanging in our kitchen!

This one is made up entirely from shells, driftwood and beach glass found on Ocean Beach.  The rope, glue and Spanish moss are store bought.  Haven’t figured out how to get glue from the beach yet!


This was made for Maureen’s birthday.  If you’ve read MURDER FOR  HIRE, think Daphne.  She’s my best friend, lives in a cottage in La Jolla and this is now the name of that cottage.

And this was made for my friend and writing partner, T. Chris Martindale.  I asked him what his favorite word was and this was his response.  😉
