Twenty-six indie authors from around the globe come together in this chilling anthology to bring you stories of terror and woe. Ghostly Writes Anthology will be a yearly anthology of scary stories written by indie authors with a taste for fear.

This will be an eBook on all major distribution sites (Perhaps late to Amazon) and it will be FREE! That’s right, folks! This big book of ghostly terrors costs you nothing. So please enjoy these horrifying tales on the night when the veil between the living and the dead is thinnest.

My story in this anthology is called “Spools of Thread”. It is about two teenage girls who decide to visit a supposedly haunted house one October night. Will they make it out alive? Nothing is what it seems in this twisty tale.

I Am Mother

That is my name
That is my job
That is my purpose
I once had dreams
Goals, hopes for a happy life
Things I wanted to do
I was once young
I was once a woman
Now I am Mother

My children flourish
They grow so quickly
I adore them
I would never want to be without them
But they are all I know
The only true relationships I have
I was once well spoken
I was once content
Now I am Mother

I am not a woman with children
It is no longer a title
I have become this title
It is all I am
Not friend
Not lover
Not confidant
Not human being
I am only Mother

How do I go back?
How do I find that girl?
She was lost over the years
Murdered by bitterness
By sarcasm and harsh words
Ignored until she disappeared
She knew happiness and hope
But she is gone forever
Now I am Mother

Who will I be when the children are gone?
When they are grown
With lives of their own
Who will I become?
Will I find real relationships?
Or will I continue to be alone
And lonely
Will I only ever be
Mother?
