Ruminate Magazine- SHORT STORY PRIZE & POETRY WORKSHOP & Visual Arts Prize

         «« chewing on life, faith, and art »»

Cover Art by Zahra Nazari 
Issue 35: A Loss for Words is out and about!
I love the scary/beautiful mystery that is implied in the phrase a loss for words. It means we’ve come to the end of ourselves, which is both frightening and good. It means that no matter how much talking, examining, or even deep pondering we give, some things are simply imponderable.
Join us as we explore the “frontiers of the unsayable” as Marilyn Robinson says.

A Paranormal Mystery

Third in The Ancient Ones series

“Steeped in ancient mysteries, and pitting a team of heroes against a wily villain who seems to have no match, Whispers Among the Ruins will keep you guessing at every turn. If you love the Southwest landscape, its myths and magic, and the people who once occupied it, you won’t want to miss this one.” – Kris Neri, author of Revenge on Route 66
